Who Are You, Polly Maggoo?

With lecture by Rebecca Breuer

Powerful commentary on 1960s fashion and cinematography; Who Are You, Polly Maggoo? (1966, 102 mins., 35mm. William Klein) is an uncompromising parody. Like Antonioni’s Blow-Up, it takes a critical approach to the worlds of fashion and media. Klein (an on-and-off fashion photographer) was a fashion-industry insider, and thus ideally equipped to launch into a thorough investigation of the subject.
