«A Shaded View on Fashion Film» (ASVOFF) shakes up the old rules of fashion by putting the focus on the moving image, in an industry long dominated by the “still” photographic medium. ASVOFF is a festival including a film selection & competition, documentaries, features and installations. The common thread that binds this diverse program is the use of fashion, beauty and/or style as the principal subject, theme or cinematic aesthetic. The festival is a study in the drama, power and personification that fashion evokes and commands on screen.
Proficient jury, which reviewed the 50 films in competition, consists of established personalities from the fields of art, film production, fashion, advertising and the media: Rick Owens, Nan Goldin, Maria de Medeiros, Eric Tong Cuong, Éric Troncy, Laurent Goumarre, Hélène Ségol.
I video dei pezzi strumentali non li fa quasi mai nessuno, quindi una nota di merito va ai GGD solo per questo. Il video è bello, soprattutto l’acqua dai riflessi neri in cui s’immergono i protagonisti . Il tutto è girato da Irwin Barbé con lo stile semi-casuale ma effettivo a cui ci ha abituato la band. Evviva. (np)
