Celebrate Auckland Art Gallery's upcoming summer exhibition Guo Pei: Fashion, Art, Fantasy 郭培 :时装之幻梦 with a film pre-party at Hollywood Cinema in Avondale. Watch Yellow is Forbidden, the stunning 2018 documentary about fashion icon Guo Pei from award-winning New Zealand filmmaker, Pietra Brettkelly. Bespoke drinks and raffle tickets will be on sale – be in to win great raffle prizes on the night!

Yellow is Forbidden is a modern-day Cinderella story where the brave, diminutive and daring heroine's dream doesn't end at the ball. Follow Guo Pei behind the scenes: from the magic of the embroidery workroom to Paris Fashion Week. See how a child growing up during the Cultural Revolution rises to fame to become a member of Paris’ prestigious Haute Couture Commission.

‘Numerous story threads keep the interest, and Pei makes for delightful company –you don't need to be interested in fashion to enjoy this visual feast of a film.’ – New Zealand Herald
