Franca: Chaos and Creation is a documentary created by Francesco Carrozzini, revolving around his mother Franca Sozzani, editor and chief of Vogue Italia. The documentary took six years to make and focuses on her massive influence on fashion editorials, but also the relation between mother and son. Whilst first discussing possibly creating the documentary, Franca asked who was gonna play her part?. To which Francesco responded "you will be playing Franca, because who can bring the story of nearly thirty years as editor to life better then the women herself".
Franca received the position of editor and chief of Vogue Italia in 1988 and almost immediately started a fashion revolution. Creating some of the most conventional magazine covers and fashion spreads of the time. She created a mixture of fashion, high concept art and photography, by also touching on controversial subjects that were uncommon for the magazine.
Francesco paints a beautiful portrait of his mother by interviewing some of her closest friends and buisnes partners like: Karl Lagerfeld, Bruce Weber, Courtney Love and many others. The Documentary is now featured on Netflix, so make sure to check it out.
