“I’m scared and feel wrapped in the dark. I’m vulnerable.”
Taking on a more narrative approach to fashion film while staying true to the genre’s strong focus on aesthetics, Alex tells us about a woman reliving and working through a trauma. The film looks at the concept of abandonment during childhood as something that we are likely to take with us into our adult life. Employing a dreamlike scenario, Alex takes on an experimental, movement-led approach as the lead character dives deeply into her subconscious.
