Pyuupiru is one of the brightest stars of the Japanese art scene, renowned for eye-popping handmade costumes and being a work of art in her own right. Director Daishi Matsunaga is an old friend who has captured every moment of Pyuupiru’s rise to fame from first high-heeled strut in the coolest clubs in Japan to cult status. The trust of friendship is behind an extraordinary documentary that provides a fascinating insight into the private life of Pyuupiru. Born a boy, she decided that that her true gender was female. The emotional and physical upheavals of becoming herself, finding love and seeking acceptance are all revealed in a fascinating portrait of an artist as both creator and creation. This special screening will be introduced by Glasgow’s own Lady Munter and is followed by a fashion show featuring the best up-and-coming local designers including Rebecca Torres, Obscure Couture and House of Black staged by iTCOW and after party with Glasgow’s Pam Hogg on decks.
