After yesterday’s Miu Miu Women’s Tales screening, everyone is talking about women's creativity. To share their opinion, today the four female directors met with the public in a session moderated by the cinema critic Marina Fabbri. Marina introduced the four directors by talking about the concept of metamorphosis.
Zoe Cassavetes: "Metamorphosis is more mental than physical. From the beginning each one of us decided not to include men in our casts. It’s difficult to make a movie; you must be a little bit crazy to do this job. Better to drop the idea that we are women, so it will be easier to make a movie. The Miu Miu Women's Tales is a fantastic idea: Miuccia loves art, women and their soul. A great opportunity to match fashion and cinema. I think Miu Miu should keep on doing this initiative."
Lucrecia Martel: "In Argentina there are many female directors. Sometimes the participation of women in the history of cinema depends on fragile things. A very small thing can become huge. The combination of fashion and cinema has always existed: it is a natural process. In Muta, protagonists are divas dressed in a typically Fifties attire, so that elegance is a necessary element. A great opportunity to use Miu Miu items in my movie: beautiful clothes fitting the actresses perfectly."
Giada Colagrande: "I received these impulses from clothes and from the feminine world such as free inspirations. Generally women think about transformation and mystery as reflections of their own image. This is the first time that I have a dress as a concept. A blood-red dress. I imagined Maya Sansa in a Hitchcock mood. I wanted the dress to be the protagonist, not the body".
Massy Tadjedin: "I really love the idea that our short film captured a transformation of a woman in a private moment, preparing herself for the next moment, as a process. This action is very feminine and elegant".
