Moritz Feed Dog 2017: Fashion is Culture
The documentary festival holds its third edition analysing fashion from all perspectives: critical thinking, history and identity.
Moritz Feed Dog has become an unmissable event in Barcelona not only for fashion aficionados, because, as the title of this year’s edition claims, fashion is culture and talks and explains many things. This edition the preogramme is comprised of 11 documentaries, each one approaching fashion from very different points of view:

THE FIRST MONDAY IN MAY
