How many times have you seen those dreamy fashion films that are filled with beautiful people and unbelievably gorgeous fashions against the heavenly backdrop of some faraway place that we find only in our dreams?
It’s rare, if at all, that an African-American cast is seen in such cinematic films. Italian fashion house, Miu Miu, released a beautiful short Sundance award winning film by director Ava DuVernay back in February that features actress Gabrielle Union as the lead. All of the fashions seen are by Miu Miu (Prada’s little sister) and the cast is rounded out by legendary actress Alfre Woodard, singer Goapele, Adepero Oduye, and Emayatzy Corinealdi.
What is the story about? “In the film, characters arrive at the door of a friend in need, bringing something of themselves,” DuVernay explains. “Eventually, we witness our heroine ready to walk through the door on her own. The door in the film represents a pathway to who we are.”
Everything from the music, fashion, and the cinematography is divine.
