The fourth installment of Miu Miu’s “Women’s Tales” short film series will premiere at the Venice Film Festival, taking place Wednesday August 29 to September 8, 2012.
It’s Getting Late is directed by Massy Tadjedin, starring Patricia Clarkson, Gemma Arterton, Rinko Kikuchi and Aubrey Plaza. The film shadows the women as they get ready for an evening out at the Hotel Cafe club in Hollywood, CA to catch a performance from Zola Jesus, deck out in – you guessed it – Miu Miu ensembles.
Miu Miu’s film series taps into a wide range of female directors, whose unique backgrounds and approaches to filmmaking have resulted in a diverse, beautiful collection of shorts that explore the brand through their all-female casts. The Woman Dress, Muta, and The Powder Room take Miu Miu’s women into glamorous mansions, eery boats, and bewitching sets straight out of Macbeth. Some of the films are haunting, others are opulent; all of them are surreal and captivating. A red Miu Miu dress may be the ultimate object of desire, or a pair of sunglasses can shield the wearer from the outside world. No matter the setting, these intimate portraits make Miu Miu a part of the actors’ lives, whether it be in the form of offering, armor, or aphrodisiac.
It’s Getting Late and the other films in the series will be screened on August 30 at Lido’s Sala Darsena during the The Venice Film Festival’s Venice Days, which shines the spotlight on female directors. There will be Q&As and panel discussions with the four directors as well.
