Geometry, color, form, and content— fashion and cinema share the same basic artistic devices, the realm of fashion a source of freedom for an auteur to express themselves in new, uninhibited ways. With roots going back to the silent period, the fashion film has become a distinguished genre unto itself. Enter Miu Miu, who since 2011 has commissioned work by some of the greatest female directors in the world, all intended for the big screen.
Metrograph is hosting Certain Women, pairing a collection of sublime short films with a celebrated feature by the same director. Running January 8 - 22nd.
