Shock, scandal and disbelief are the hallmarks of Jean Paul Gaultier, a fashion dictator, the tireless ‘enfant terrible’ of Paris' catwalks. Each of his shows is a huge event. Everything that comes out of his studio is recognizable at first glance – whether it's a bottle of perfume or costumes in a futuristic film. The director invites us to discover a new but natural embodiment of the eccentric creator – the theatre – for the retrospective of 40-year Gaultier's creative activity in show on the stage of the famous Folies Bergère.

Yann L'Henoret (1970) French director and documentary filmmaker. He started out as a cameraman, then as a director. He has made many films and documentaries. For eight months he followed the En Marche! team with his camera, which results in a film about Emmanuel Macron's presidential campaign behind the scenes. His latest film, Jean Paul Gaultier: Freak and Chic was preceded by six months of meetings and preparations for the Fashion Freak Show.
