On Sunday 22nd May we'll be screening Yellow is Forbidden 2018 Pietra Brettkelly (1h 37m) New Zealand
About the film:
YELLOW IS FORBIDDEN is a modern day Cinderella story where the brave, diminutive and daring heroine's dream doesn't end at the ball - China's Guo Pei is chasing every designer's fantasy - to become part of the exclusive yet savage world of Haute Couture. Set within the new China, YELLOW IS FORBIDDEN is a feature documentary encompassing contemporary global power dynamics and the opposition between art and commerce, looking back at the history of couture all wrapped around the beauty of fashion.

We have set aside 2.5 hrs in the Songlines Experience Space for it. The space is air-conditioned, has a large screen and excellent sound system.
Songlines is open from 3.30 pm.
The screening will start at 4.00 pm.
On the program over coming weeks are iconic documentaries including McQueen.
