A MAN'S STORY
A MAN'S STORY is a unique cinematic achievement. It's 1998 and filmmaker Varon Bonicos begins recording the day-to-day work of Boateng, who remains dynamic and passionate about his clothes even as faces bankruptcy and divorce. Bonicos' camera would continue to roll for the next 12 years, through the bad times and the days of triumphant renewal. What emerges is a groundbreaking film that takes us on an exhilarating behind-the-scenes ride into the world of high fashion with one of the most influential menswear designers of his generation.
Ending in 2010 when Boateng closes London Fashion Week with the biggest menswear show in history, Bonicos' film is able to get behind the headlines and chart Boateng's singular dream to succeed. A MAN'S STORY goes to the very heart of what Boateng has spent an entire career trying to distill: "what it is to be a man."
