Title: Black Dandy, a political beauty. A documentary by Laurent Lunetta and Ariel Wizman. Distributed by Canal Plus

About
Black Dandy explores “black dandyism” from the days of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade to today’s masculine chic. It documents historic and contemporary scenes of popular and celebrity culture and everyday life where Black dandies, in the streets of Brooklyn, Johannesburg, London and Paris, are redefining the landscape of ‘black dandyism’ as a blend of detachment and strength, nonchalance and control.
