Director: Giulia Achenza
Synopsis: The Mirror is the latest fashion film directed by Giuila Achenza for the Milan-based fine jewellery brand Avel Lenttan. The film takes us on a journey of self-discovery, in which we learn to appreciate and love the natural beauty that is hidden within ourselves highlighted by the refined simplicity of the brand’s collection. We are presented with two identical women meeting at a crossroad between dream and reality. Facing one another with curiosity, they slowly come to realise how they are one and the same – two sides of the same person who have learnt to co-exist and appreciate each other’s peculiarities.
