A moving exploration of the revolutionary life of the pioneering Black supermodel Donyale Luna.

Donyale Luna: Supermodel explores the remarkable life and career of Donyale Luna, one of the first Black supermodels who graced the covers of both Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar in Europe. Today, most people have never heard of her. Born Peggy Anne Freeman in Detroit, Luna went on to revolutionise the fashion industry in the 1960s and 1970s, becoming the muse to some of the foremost photographers of the 20th century, until her untimely death at the age of 33 in 1979. A regular presence at Andy Warhol’s Factory, she appeared in his 1964 film Camp, as well as films by Federico Fellini, Otto Preminger and William Klein. Luna’s life is chronicled through a rich trove of archive footage and interviews with family and friends, who detail the obstacles she overcame to achieve worldwide fame.
