Dior and I brings the viewer inside the storied world of the Christian Dior fashion house with a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Raf Simons’ first haute couture collection as its new artistic director—a true labor of love created by a dedicated group of collaborators. Melding the everyday, pressure- filled components of fashion with mysterious echoes from the iconic brand’s past, the film is also a colorful homage to the seamstresses who serve Simons’ vision.

"A brilliant film. I loved it." Justine Picardie, Harper’s Bazaar

"Simply the best movie about fashion." Elle

"Dior and I is a great fashion movie, but it’s also a superb picture about the art of management, applicable to any field." Village Voice

Sissako’s first feature since 2007’s Bamako is a swift, forceful response to the brief but traumatic months in 2013 when foreign Jihadists seized control of the northern Malian city and imposed Sharia law. Timbuktu is distinguished by Sissako’s supple navigation of a wide spectrum of individuals and moods (including a fair bit of humour and warmth) and refusal to caricature even men whose intolerance marks them as his polar opposite.

Academy Award nominee, Best Foreign Language Film

"Breathtakingly beautiful." Stephen Holden, New York Times

"An extraordinary film." Richard Brody, New Yorker

“Powerful. Stunning. Sissako is a master.” Jay Weissberg, Variety
