TRAILERS
THE WOMEN'S LIST, Dir. by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders

 

Join Timothy Greenfield-Sanders & producers for an important discussion on the film, following the screening of THE WOMEN'S LIST.  Nov. 14, 5.30PM at Symphony Space, NYC

 

Presented in collaboration with PBS

JEREMY SCOTT: THE PEOPLE'S DESIGNER, Dir. by Vlad Yudin

 

Viewers follow the story of Jeremy’s ascent from a small town in Missouri to his current position as the Creative Director of the Italian fashion house Moschino. A favorite among celebrities, Jeremy Scott has become one of the most, if not the most, polarizing figures in the contemporary fashion scene. The film illustrates this predicament with an array of interviews featuring the likes of trendsetters, industry leaders, and celebrities such as A$AP Rocky, Katy Perry, Paris Hilton, Miley Cyrus and Rita Ora.

THIS IS ONLY TEMPORARY by Lindsay Lucas-Bartlett

 

Pippa, an aspiring British actress, clumsily works her way into the limelight of Hollywood.

 

Official Webseries Selection

TAKA, Dir. by Fabrizio Azzellini (Italy)

"TAKA" - from the Latvian language - means the path that must be walked.  Burgeoning from the complexities of nature, TAKA is a bold fashion film that breaks away from traditions of story and place. 

 

“You need to leave, sometimes you drift, and sometime you get involved. Discover the nature to fulfill the destiny, reach the destination- unknown before the departure."

THE LOVES OF AARON BURR by Camilla Huey

The narrative of The Loves of Aaron Burr: Portraits in Corsetry & Binding follows the design process from the workroom to the exhibition of the corset portraits of women in the life of Aaron Burr at the Morris-Jumel Mansion, the very place where many of these women’s stories took place. The film explores biography and personification through the feminine arts of colonial, revolutionary and Federalist New York as told through these ladies’ material culture, fetishes, ephemera, and letters.

DESERT WIDOW by Jil Guyon

Based on a site-specific solo performance, "Desert Widow" features a woman driven into a vast, otherworldly landscape. As she traverses the shifting tableau of desert topography a metaphysical yearning compels the woman to perform a sequence of ritualized actions. Day and night converge, as do land and water, creating a subtle yet dramatic interplay between light, movement, music, silence, and stillness. Through this melding of the pictorial with the performative - death, renewal, and transcendence are explored.

DEAR FRIENDS, Dir. by Paulina Dana

One afternoon, six teenage friends gather at a cemetery. They appear to be rambling: they film each other engaging in horseplay and crossed relationships. Talking about death, drinking, chatting about dreams, smoking marijuana, they compare the place with school and avoid issues. Music plays, they’re alive. The place seems familiar. But the seemingly aimless afternoon does have a point.
