APC to Take Pierre Cardin Doc Global


About Premium Content (APC) has secured the global rights for ARTE’s recently completed documentary on Pierre Cardin, the legendary fashion designer who passed away last week at age 98.

The hour-long, English-language doc Pierre Cardin, A Figure of Modernity was produced by O2B Films for ARTE. It tells the story of the controversial French couturier, from his humble beginnings as an Italian refugee to his artistic and financial successes.

Laurent Boissel and Emmanuelle Guilbart, joint CEOs and co-founders at APC, said: “Pierre Cardin, A Figure of Modernity is an inspiring documentary—celebrating the life and work of one of the most celebrated fashion designers. The fashion world is mourning his loss at the end of 2020 and this timely and fitting documentary pays tribute to his genius. We hope this film will offer a unique insight into his life which his fans and admirers have never seen before.”
