Directors Dimitri Pailhe and Julien Potart have put together something that looks to be very special. They’ve made a documentary that is focused completely on T-Shirts. Yes, an entire documentary about T-Shirts. Of course, this should peak your interest considering you’re perusing a T-Shirt blog. Tee Shirt Stories: Cotton, Art & Fun was broadcast in France on Canal+ on June 29, 2011. Unfortunately for me, I don’t live in France and therefore I haven’t been able to take a peak at this documentary. So since I haven’t seen it, a full review will indeed have to wait!
In the meantime, you can go ahead and order the documentary on DVD. It’s available now over at the Colette webstore for €25 – about the price of the T-Shirt! OK, I’m going to go ahead and place my order now so that I can give you guys a proper review!
“This documentary offers an immersion in the culture of the tee-shirt, this simple piece of clothing has become a work of art for some and counter culture symbol for others. Featuring Dov Charney, Richard Hell, Daniel Johnston, Tony Alva, Jim Philips, Court Johnson, Grotesk, Earsnot, Pedro Winter and So-Me, Mark Cobrasnake and Jonny Makeup….”
