Dior and I

Filmmaker Frederic Tcheng’s Dior and I will be shown on Thursday (20 October) as part of the Oxford Brookes Documentary Club’s season of thought-provoking screenings.

Dior and I enters the world of the House of Christian Dior with a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Raf Simons highly anticipated first Haute Couture collections as the iconic brand’s new Artistic Director. From conception through to its ultimate exhibition, the process is shown to be a true labour of love by the stoic Simons and a dedicated, charming and often humorous team of collaborators.

The screening is in collaboration with Oxford Fashion Week which kicks off on Monday (26 October).

After last year’s successful inaugural season, the Documentary Club is back with a programme of events for 2015/16.

The Documentary Club’s programme of screenings is a valuable addition to the range of opportunities available to staff, students and the public.

Staff, students and the general public are invited to the free screening of 12 documentaries spanning the wide-reaching themes of genocide and government corruption to the quirky world of competitive cat shows. Covering both the dark and light sides of the human psyche, as well as our impact on the planet, this programme of documentaries is set to challenge, inform and entertain the audience. 

Associate Dean Student Experience Alison Honour explained why she thinks it is so important to share these ideas at Oxford Brookes: “We pride ourselves on engaging not just the students and staff at Brookes but also the wider community of Oxford.

“The Documentary Club’s programme of screenings is a valuable addition to the range of opportunities available to staff, students and the public, to broaden awareness and question aspects of life in the wider and international community.”

Screenings are free and are held in the John Henry Brookes lecture theatre every Thursday at 7pm.
