London-based distributor Dogwoof has taken the UK rights to Andrew Rossi‘s Tribeca Film Festival opener, The First Monday in May.

The deal was closed with French sales agent Elle Driver, and a UK release is planned for this fall. Dogwoof previously represented Rossi’s Page One: Inside The New York Times.

First Monday examines the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute’s spring 2015 exhibit, “China: Through the Looking Glass,” honing in on the tension between fashion and art.

The film features interviews with directors Wong Kar Wai and Baz Luhrmann, alongside fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld, Jean Paul Gaultier and John Galliano. Also featured are musicians Rihanna and Justin Bieber.

The First Monday in May is a fantastically entertaining look at the inner workings of one of fashion’s biggest events, and after we achieved such success across all platforms with Dior and I last year, we are confident we can deliver a first-class release befitting of the film,” said Oli Harbottle, head of distribution at Dogwoof, in a statement.

Dogwoof recently acquired the international rights – excluding North America, Australia and New Zealand – and UK distribution for Roger Ross Williams’ Life, Animated, as well as the international rights to Robert Greene’s Kate Plays Christine.
