Girl Power At The Venice Film Festival, Brought To You By Miu Miu-------
Miu Miu is set to debut the fourth installment of its “Women’s Tales” short film series as part of the Venice Film Festival later this week. Miuccia Prada commissioned the project, which began last year with Zoe Cassavetes’ short The Powder Room), to celebrate young female directors from around the globe and explore feminine rituals and codes. After screening short movies by Cassavetes, Lucrecia Martel, and Giada Colagrande, Miu Miu will present director Massy Tadjedin’s It’s Getting Late Thursday night at Lido’s Sala Darsena. In the film, actresses Gemma Arterton, Rinko Kikuchi, Patricia Clarkson, and Aubrey Plaza get dressed up for a night out in Hollywood (wearing plenty of Miu Miu, of course). Before the crowds get to see the full film in Venice, Style.com has a first look at the trailer here. If you happen to be in Venice for the film festival, you can catch all of the project’s directors at live panel discussions in the Sala Tropicana on August 31 as part of Miu Miu’s Venice Days (a three-day showcase celebrating avant-garde cinema).
