Miu Miu continue their love affair with self-expression through film with their fifth episode entitled The Door by Ava DuVernay, which was unveiled today on their website. The short film is about sisterhood – a celebration of the transformative power of female bonds – and is a symbolic story of life change.
The Door follows The Powder Room, by Zoe Cassavetes; Muta, by Lucrecia Martel; The Woman Dress, by Giada Colagrande and It’s Getting Late, by Massy Tadjedin in The Miu Miu Women’s Tales series. Each short film combines credible filmmaking themes and strong feminine points of view with fashion directed by and starring the fairer sex – quite arguably so.
Inspired by the strength and vulnerability of Miu Miu’s designs, director DuVernay decided on a story about a woman who is at a vulnerable time in her life who leans on the strength of friendship. Using clothing as a symbol of renewal, each change of costume charts the heroine’s emergence from a chrysalis of sadness.
All five films from the project can be viewed on a dedicated area of the Miu Miu site, alongside exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.
