Join us on Tuesday October 6th for the Rhode Island Premiere of MEN OF THE CLOTH, an inspiring portrait of three Italian master tailors who confront the decline of the apprentice system as they navigate their challenging roles in the twilight of their career. The film unravels the mystery of their artistry and reveals how their passionate devotion to their Old World craft is akin to a religion.

The event starts at 7 PM (and runs until 9:07 PM) at the Showcase Cinemas Warwick (1200 Quaker Lane, Warwick RI 02886). Producer/director Vicki Vasilopoulos will be present for the Q&A following the film screening. Vicki was the Senior Fashion Editor at DNR (now a part of WWD), the men’s newsmagazine where she styled and produced photo layouts, reviewed designer runway shows and wrote fashion feature stories. As a freelance writer has had features published in The New York Times, Esquire, and Time Out New York. Vicki served as a film series programmer for New York Women in Film and Television. She has a Journalism degree from New York University, and has also studied at The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and the Paris Fashion Institute in France.

MEN OF THE CLOTH is Vicki’s first feature film and had a sold-out World Premiere at DOC NYC, the largest documentary film festival in America. It was the opening night film at the Craft in Focus Festival in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and was voted an Audience Favorite at the Three Rivers Film Festival in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It has also screened at the Italian Film Fest Vancouver, the Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival in New York, the Black Nights Film Festival in Estonia, the Montclair Film Festival in New Jersey, the La Femme Film Festival for women directors in Los Angeles, and the San Joaquin International Film Festival in California.
