SEPTEMBER ISSUE, THE (PG)

USA, 2009 (MIFF 2009, Documentaries)

Director: R.J. Cutler

“An engrossing peek inside the fashion world's corridors of power.” - Variety

Allegedly the inspiration for Meryl Streep's character in The Devil Wears Prada, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is one of the most powerful and polarising figures in fashion. With unprecedented access, this film follows the notoriously icy Wintour and her harried team as they prepare the massive (800+ pages!) September 2007 edition of Vogue.

Full of simmering inter-office intrigue and bitchy editorial meetings, and featuring an editorial chief that makes respected designers quiver in their boots, The September Issue is a fascinating look behind the glamour of the fashion biz.

Winner of the cinematography award at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
