    Girl In Dior Signing Tour

    Gir- In-Dior

    Press Release:

    This April, NBM Publishing, one of the pioneers in graphic novel publishing in the US for 37 years and a leader in literary comic art, proudly launches a sweepingly beautiful biography docudrama of the life of Christian Dior from the launch of his house and his “New Look” in Girl in Dior.

    One of France’s grand dames of comic art, Annie Goetzinger, will be on hand for the premiere of Girl in Dior at MoCCA Arts Festival, one of her many appearances while visiting the United States. Other appearances include a panel at the French Embassy co-sponsored by Christian Dior Couture US and moderated by Dior House illustrator, Bil Donovan and a signing/art display at New York’s Kinokuniya Bookstore.

    The Girl in Dior is Clara, a freshly hired chronicler, fan of fashion and our guide in the busy corridors of the brand new house of Christian Dior. It’s February 12, 1947 and the crème de la crème of Paris Haute Couture is flocking to the momentous event of Dior’s first show. In a flurry of corolla shaped skirts, the parade of models file down the runway. The audience is mesmerized: it’s a triumph! Carmel Snow of Harper’s Bazaar cries out: “It’s quite a revolution, your dresses have such a new look!“ Dior’s career is launched and Clara’s story begins. Soon, she is picked by Dior himself to be his model…

    A biography docudrama marrying fiction and the story of one of the greatest couturier in history, it is also a breathless and stunning presentation of his best designs such as Lauren Bacall wore, rendered by bestselling artist Annie Goetzinger, seen for the first time on this side of the Atlantic.

    Below please find Annie Goetzinger’s appearance schedule.

    MA – Nerdgasm Screening

    tlenk

    Actor Tom Lenk (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Cabin in the Woods, Transformers) appears at the Brattle Theatre on Saturday April 4, 2015 at 2:30 PM to host a screening of NERDGASM. Presented as part of the Boston LGBT Film Festival. Tickets are available at the link…

    About NERDGASM: Directed by Andrew Putschoegl. 87 min. USA.

    Actor/comedian Tom Lenk has been a nerd all his life; on stage, on screen, and in reality. Known for his comedic roles in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Cabin in the Woods,” “Transformers,” and “Much Ado About Nothing,” Tom attempts to fulfill a lifelong “drama geek” dream to perform his live solo comedy show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, the largest and most famous theater festival in the world. Part “dorkumentary,” part concert film, NERDGASM takes us behind the scenes of Tom’s unusual, exciting and sometimes lazy approach to creating a non-traditional “one man show” – from practice shows in L.A.’s low-rent Theater Row to grandiose and historic British venues. Throughout the trip Tom tries to satisfy his own personal Scotland-centric geeky cravings for Harry Potter, underground cities, Loch Ness Mythology and delicious sausage rolls. Tom’s fun-loving and neurotic persona is put to the test on stage, in the Scottish Highland wilderness and in the “Buffy” themed memorabilia room at the home of his biggest local Edinburgh fan. Language: English
