FILM & CROSSMEDIA PROJECTS

 

 

Synopsis

Dresses run ashore like survivors from a shipwreck. A nun spots them from afar and they’re quickly scooped up, laid to dry, and find a new life as celebrities in an unnamed local hotel run by the entrepreneurial nuns. A herd of paparazzi stampede the lobby with their invasive zoom lenses. But something’s not quite right. The story they want isn’t the story they’re about to be given. That story belongs to a very special dress and she’s going to tell it exactly her way.
De Djess is the ninth commission from "Miu Miu Women’s Tales", the short-film series by women who critically celebrate femininity in the 21st century.
