Dear Shaded Viewers,
This week as a teaser to the ASVOFF Milano edition ASVOF will give you a one image preview of some of the films in the LIGHT SERIES, "1-Minute Light" project: a series of 1-minute fashion films commissioned by DP in collaboration with Vogue Italia.
ZAN DARA by Griffin
A forward-thinking director and producer with a truly global perspective, Griffin started his career directing music videos in Japan, almost 10 years ago. He has worked with artists such as Rodarte, Sean Lennon, Pharrell Williams, Jena Malone, Vincent Gallo, Jenny Lewis, Big Daddy Kane, 400 Blows, Wise of The Teriyaki Boyz, Yoko Ono, among others. Currently focusing his energies on the exciting and emerging genre of fashion films, his collaboration with Rodarte, VOX HUMANA was selected as the first fashion film to be featured on vogue.it (Italian Vogue) on its launch.
ZAN DARA is an exploration of memory and experience seen through the mind and eye of a star in her twilight years. Loosely drawing inspiration from the Greek myth about vanity, Narcissus, the film examines memories of beauty, joy and pain associated with a life in front of the camera. ZAN DARA unfolds through multiple perspectives of its star, 1952 Miss Stockholm and former 1950s top Vogue model and actress, Gita Hall.
