HIGH & LOW – JOHN GALLIANO is the gripping and thought-provoking new documentary from Academy Award® winner Kevin Macdonald (TOUCHING THE VOID), charting the rise-and-fall story of fashion designer John Galliano. Galliano was widely recognized as one of the most successful names in 1990s and 2000s couture, until his career abruptly ended when he was caught on camera in 2011 hurling antisemitic and racist insults at bystanders in Paris. Featuring conversations with Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Penélope Cruz, Charlize Theron, Anna Wintour, Edward Enninful and more, Macdonald’s compelling documentary traces Galliano’s working and private life through the decades, candidly investigating his struggles with addiction and the industry pressure that tripped him up along the way.

“Macdonald has crafted one of the most riveting rise-fall-redemption story arcs in documentary format in recent memory, with Galliano himself as his unreliable — but never less than compelling — guide.” —Christian Blauvelt, IndieWire

Macdonald’s portrait may be empathetic, but it never lets Gibraltar-born Galliano off the hook… Reality for John Galliano, now the creative director of Maison Margiela, is never going to match anyone else’s perception of the world, but this stands as a generous and independently-minded insight of a man still grappling with who he really is, if there’s anyone left at all.” —Fionnuala Halligan, Screen Daily

“Much of the power of Macdonald’s film lies in the way that it refuses to neatly lead us to a place of forgiveness.” —Mark Holgate, Vogue
