Not all things change with the times: Kenneth Anger, at 83, is still his amazing self. Right at the time when the fashion world is promoting its image through cinema, here’s a lesson for everybody. He took the whole Missoni family and melted them in his visual magma. Music by Koudlam.
Continua la sempre più collaudata collaborazione tra gli artisti e i fashion designer. Dopo il video di Ari Marcopolous per Adam Kimmel e quello di Samuel Benchetrit per Yves Saint Laurent, è la volta di Collier Schorr per Tim Hamilton.

«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.
