Celebrated fashion designer Coco Chanel (1883 – 1971) fought many battles throughout her life, rising above her station as a labourer, resisting societal conventions and moral norms, and challenging her contemporaries. She even consorted with Nazis during the Second World War. Above all, she was driven to live on her own terms and make a name for herself. This documentary looks at the businesswoman behind the famous designer, offering a portrait of a woman who constantly reinvented herself, carving her own path and creating her own legend. Coco Chanel saw herself as a fighter in a time of war — and of women’s emancipation.
