Miu Miu Women’s Tales

29.08.2013 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

In 2011, Miu Miu debuted The Women’s Tales, a series of short films that Miuccia Prada commissioned from international female directors, each of whom explored various aspects of the feminine experience in their work. And today Le Donne della Vucciria, set entirely in the city of Palermo, is making its world premiere at Venice Days. Above you’ll find the trailer. The renowned Palestinian actress Hiam Abbas is the director of the short.

This will be followed by The Door by Ava DuVernay, the first African-American woman to win an award for Best Director at Sundance. The Door is a celebration of the transformative power of the bonds between a number of different women.

The two short films present a different vision of a woman´s world and its metamorphoses. The clothes from the collection, in fact, are no mere accessories or ornamental elements; they symbolize renewal, accompanying the stars of the short films on a path leading to personal “rebirth”.

There’s more to Miu Miu Women´s Tales than just visuals, a series of talks will be devoted to the theme of female creativity. On August 30 and August 31 festival audiences will be able to watch several leading ladies in film and the arts at large as they engage in three dialogues moderated by journalist and filmmaker Monica Maggioni. The three conversations cover different creative stages in filmmaking: directing ,production and acting.

The idea for the talks was born from the need to stimulate reflection on women’s experiences working and expressing their creativity in various sectors of the film industry. Miu Miu presents the voices of quite different personalities who have had first-hand experience of the risks and the rewards of a career in film in a “man’s world”.
