I received an email yesterday from Miu Miu announcing the premiere in NY of their newest short film, So Yong Kim's 'Spark and Light', the 7th in their Women's Tales series... and thought to myself, the 7th?? How has time passed so quickly? I only honestly remember watching the very first one ('The Powder Room' by Zoe Cassavetes) and it felt like just a year or so ago!
I started clicking through the different films and came upon this one, Marta, by Argentinean Lucrecia Martel. Muta means both 'transformation' and 'mute' and I quote from their site, 'is a beautiful and cryptic portrayal of an all female world of symbolism, hidden meaning and intrigue.' 'Cryptic' it definitely was, to the point of it being quite eery and slightly disturbing. 'Beautiful'? Oh yes, and more... I always love a heady mix of beauty with the peculiar, don't you?
Anyways, enough yapping from me. Just wanted to share with you what I thought was a lovely combination of film and fashion!
Ms. Prada, can Hong Kong do the next one pretty please?
