The world of fashion is chronicled in three films, including rarely screened documentaries by the celebrated American-born French fashion photographer and filmmaker William Klein.

The Wednesday Night film series is supported by the Dean and Zoë Pappas Family Foundation.
  • In and Out of Fashion (1998)
    • Wednesday, October 1, 2014, 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
      This collage-like film assembles segments from William Klein’s earlier documentaries to present a cinematic retrospective of his work as a photographer and filmmaker. Klein’s studies of fashion range from rare footage of an Yves Saint Laurent runway show to black-and-white images shot backstage at Paris haute couture shows, plus musings on what we can learn by studying how even ordinary people dress.
