Caid Productions introduces the upcoming theatrical release of its new documentary, God Save My Shoes. The feature version of the filmwill first release at the Quad Cinema in New York on March 30th 2012.
Written and directed by Julie Benasra, God Save My Shoes 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 in New York last September, during a private screening event on the eve of Fashion week. 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 premiereon February 24th.
