I’ve been watching a ton of documentaries in my free time recently and it’s actually a lot less boring than it sounds. I think that documentaries have a bad reputation, they are really insightful without being dull and drab!
The September Issue is a documentary that followed the staff of Vogue Magazine through the entire planning and production of the 2007 September issue of Vogue. The film features Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, and Grace Coddington, creative director of Vogue.
Although it’s not as action packed as The Devil Wears Prada, The September Issue is definitely as drama-filled. I really liked this documentary because it depicts what it is actually like to work for a magazine, through all of the ups and downs. It also does a really good job of showing the creative process behind the stories in the magazine.
I could watch this over and over again. You should watch it too!
