A Man's Story

We now have official USA theatrical opening cities and theater locations for A Man's Story, the highly-anticipated Ozwald Boateng documentary we first alerted you way back in 2010, when it's released in the USA on November 2nd.

The film will open on that day, in New York City, at the IFC Center; and in Los Angeles, at the Laemmle NoHo 7.

That's it for opening weekend. I expect it'll gradually expand to other cities, depending on how well it does in the first 2.

I'll be seeing the film before then, and will share my thoughts right here soon afterward.

The feature doc centers on charismatic Ghanaian-born Savile Row designer, Ozwald Boateng, who has outfitted men like Will SmithJamie FoxxSpike LeeBrad Pitt,Chris RockDaniel Day LewisDon CheadleForest WhitakerRussell CroweWesley Snipes, and countless others.

The film, 12 years in the making (by director Varon Bonicos who started filming Boateng in 1998 – he opened his first Savile Row shop in 1994, at age 34), is both a professional and personal profile of Boateng, focusing on his business, his design process, and his private life.

“… hard-working and very humanly flawed, Boateng’s personal and professional triumphs and set-backs are the fascinating heart of this film which is set against a back-drop of models, movie stars and fabulous locations… Boateng is also fascinating from a sociological perspective. As a black and heterosexual man, he breaks the stereotypes of the fashion industry,” says a write-up of the film on Britfilms.com.

And on-top of suiting up the elite, Boateng has done quite a bit of wardrobe design for films you have all seen, like The MatrixTomorrow Never DiesOceans 13, and a few others.

I should also mention that Ozwald’s appreciation for cinema has inspired him to write and direct as many as 10 short films, some we've featured on S&A.

The 90-minute film has already been released in the UK (in theaters and home video).
