True Stories

2007 | Fashion in Film Festival at MoMI

1986, 89 mins., 35mm. Directed by David Byrne. With John Goodman, Spalding Gray. In his first feature film, David Byrne used actual stories from supermarket tabloids to create an exaggerated patchwork exposé of American life. The stylized costumes play a key role in expressing Byrne’s incisive, cartoon-like vision.
