Syndicado Film Sales has announced today their acquisition of international sales rights for writer / director / producer, Christian D. Bruun's documentary, CALENDAR GIRL, which will make its world premiere in the Metropolis category at DOC NYC 2020.
 
CALENDAR GIRL tells the quintessential New York story of Ruth Finley, who founded and ran the influential Fashion Calendar for over 70 years. With its iconic pink pages, the Fashion Calendar laid out every fashion event in New York City, including New York Fashion Week.

In 2014, Ruth retired at 95 and sold the Fashion Calendar to the Council of Fashion Designers of America. The documentary examines this momentous transition, and reflects on the life, work, and legacy of this trailblazer and the industry Ruth helped create.

Her story is told by designers like Carolina Herrera, Thom Browne, and Nicole Miller, industry insiders like Steven Kolb, Valerie Steele, and Eric Wilson, her sons, and many more who bear witness to her long career as publisher, entrepreneur, patron saint and fairy godmother to fashion designers.

"'The end of an era' is the film's recurring theme. How could it not be? Ruth and the CFDA both cared deeply about the fast-changing business, and the transfer of the Calendar was a long-time-coming urgent solution to a problem affecting the entire industry, with no clear answers. The sale was difficult for Ruth, who had hoped to keep her business within the family. I wanted to show that her work had also inspired a new generation to define its own hopes, challenges, and solutions," said filmmaker Christian D. Bruun.
