Miu Miu debuts ‘That One Day’ and ‘Seed.’
September 1st brought forth the two latest short films in Miu Miu’s the Women’s Tales series – titled ‘Seed’ by Naomi Kawase, and ‘That One Day’ by Crystal Moselle. They made their appearances at the Venice Film Festival’s Giornate degli Autori program.
The Women’s Tales is a short-film series that was launched by Miu Miu back in 2012, in partnership with the Venice Film Festival. The films in the series are directed only by women and are aimed to celebrate 21st Century femininity. Miu Miu commissions two films annually. ‘That One Day’ is the 12th film of the series; directed by the 2015 Sundance Film Festival U.S Documentary Grand Jury Prize winner for her documentary titled Wolfpack, Crystal Moselle.
“I am in love with the transformation stage in a girl’s life,” Moselle commented about her film. “When they are not quite a girl but not quite a woman.” She explores loneliness, sisterhood, vulnerability and the strength to admit it in ‘That One Day’, dreamily visualizing a teenage girl’s journey from being timid and isolated to overcoming it, and how one day can change everything.
Other films from The Woman’s Tales series are:
Seed by Naomi Kawase; Les 3 Boutons by Agnes Varda; De Djess by Alice Rohrwacher; Somebody by Miranda July; Spark and Light by So Yong Kim; Le Donne della Vucciria by Hiam Abbass; The Door by Ava DuVernay; It’s Getting Late by Massy Tadjedin; The Woman Dress by Giada Colagrande; Muta by Lucrecia Martel; and The Powder Room by Zoe Cassavetes.
