THE INCOMPARABLE ROSE HARTMAN documentary, now on view in Barcelona at the Moritz Feed Dog fashion Film festival, focuses on the 4 decades career of the legendary photographer. Directed by Otis Mass, it follows Hartman seeking her prey in the “chiffon jungle”, going from ateliers, to fashion shows, exhilarating backstage and glittering nights at Studio 54, Xenon, Palladium and other memorable night clubs in the city.
THE IMCOMPARABLE ROSE HARTMAN is also a very personal, intimate look to the life and career of a woman in a world mostly dominated by men, a tireless, real New Yorker. The movie features interviews with many personalities of the fashion world, including Carolina Herrera, Simon Doonan and Donna Karan.
