New York, NY (PRWEB) February 16, 2012
Caid Productions announced today the upcoming theatrical release of its new documentary, God Save My Shoes. The feature version of the film (70mn) will first release at the Quad Cinema in New York on March 30th 2012.
Written and directed by Julie Benasra, God Save My Shoes (http://www.godsavemyshoes.com) is the first film to explore the passionate relationship between women and their shoes, and to examine how shoes have come to occupy such a pivotal role in pop culture, sexuality and women’s lives.
God Save My Shoes features celebrities Fergie, Dita Von Teese, Kelly Rowland, poker player Beth Shak, star designers Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, Pierre Hardy and Walter Steiger, as well as fashion historian Valerie Steele, former Vogue Accessories editor Filipa Fino and many more.
“I always envisioned this film as being offbeat, witty, and sassy,” says Julie Benasra the director of God Save my Shoes, “but I owe it to the cast who span this fashion documentary into a vivid portrait of the modern woman, a reflection of our condition as women in this society through our relationship to shoes.”
God Save My Shoes premiered in its TV version (60’) in New York last September, during a private screening event on the eve of Fashion week that drew over 500 fashionistas and celebrities, including Dita Von Teese. The film then premiered in Paris late September, in the Middle East at the Abu Dhabi Film festival in October and it will soon make its UK premiere at the Glasgow Film Festival on February 24th. God Save My Shoes was first released in France by Canal Plus on October 6th, where it won the public’s embrace, was viewed by over one million people and generated more than 300 press reviews and articles.
Responding to the early success of the film, Producer Thierry Daher and Director Julie Benasra decided to lengthen the film and come up with a full feature 70mn documentary film. It is this director’s cut version that will release for the first time at the QUAD Cinema on March 30th, then nationwide on VOD and DVD in May.
Starting on Wednesday February 15th, Caid Productions has also start releasing a new mini series of 12 short exclusive episodes (12 x 3mn) of God Save My Shoes’ behind the scenes and unseen before footage, titled GSMS DIRECTOR’S DIARY. A new episode will be published every week on http://www.godsavemyshoes.com and on the film’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/godsavemyshoes for the upcoming 12 weeks.
