Utopia and Pulse Film’s official Sundance Selection documentary Meet Me in the Bathroom — directed by Will Lovelace and Dylan Southern and based on the successful oral history released by author Elizabeth Goodman in 2017 — has partnered with photographer and Grand Couturier Hedi Slimane to celebrate the film’s official US theatrical release.
The collaboration joins still-life images taken by Slimane during the book’s eponymous era of rock n’ roll revival between the years of 2001 - 2011 into a limited release concert poster to celebrate the film’s upcoming NYC and LA premiere events. The film features legendary bands such as The Moldy Peaches, The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem and more as it covers their come up amongst the backdrop of Lower East Side dive bars and gritty city streets.
Hedi Slimane became synonymous with this era while at the helm of Dior Homme leading as its Creative Director and Slimane’s intimate relationship with music has remained a creative force in his work as he continues to set the tone for a relationship between fashion and underground musical talent.
The premiere events in LA (October 27 at The Fonda Theater) and NYC (October 30 at Webster Hall) have featured a special screening of the documentary with special guest panel Q&A and the first-ever reunion performance by The Moldy Peaches.
Meet Me in the Bathroom will be released in theaters on November 4th at IFC, NY and Los Feliz, Los Angeles followed by a national theater opening expansion the week of November 11th. It should be then available on different streaming platforms.
