Kevin Macdonald
HIGH & LOW - JOHN GALLIANO is the gripping and thought-provoking new documentary from Academy Award® winner Kevin Macdonald (Touching the Void), charting the rise-and-fall story of fashion designer John Galliano. Galliano was widely recognized as one of the most successful names in 1990s and 2000s couture, until his career abruptly ended when he was caught on camera in 2011 hurling antisemitic and racist insults at bystanders in Paris. Featuring conversations with Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Penélope Cruz, Charlize Theron, Anna Wintour, Edward Enninful and more, Macdonald’s compelling documentary traces Galliano’s working and private life through the decades, candidly investigating his struggles with addiction and the industry pressure that tripped him up along the way.
