Dali and Beyond Film Series: Moulin Rouge
The Dalí & Beyond Film Series features an eclectic selection of films – both familiar and fantastic – with monthly themes ranging from horror, experimental and psychological to kid-friendly and world cinema. In conjunction with our special exhibition, Dalí and Schiaparelli, Saturdays in December will feature films for which Schiaparelli designed costumes.
Visually exquisite biopic of Toulouse-Lautrec, the crippled painter whose work perfectly captured the spirit of bohemian Paris in the naughty 1890s. Portrayed as an embittered loner, he is tormented by doomed relationships with prostitute Marie Charlet and sympathetic model Myriamme. Schiaparelli designed Zsa Zsa Gabor’s costumes, some of which are inspired by Lautrec poster designs. Moulin Rouge was the last film for which Schiaparelli designed costumes.
