NEW PROJECT WITH VOGUE ITALIA

screen-shot-2016-09-21-at-15-14-04Fashion Film Festival Milano and Vogue Italia joined together to support talent and celebrate the Italian fashion world.

THROUGH MY EYES presents ten among the most important Italian brands, through the eyes of ten upcoming fashion filmmakers coming from all over the world.

Each brand has been assigned to a filmmaker who created an original fashion film. The outcome is a special collection of diverse and innovative fashion films, creating a variety of new communication media. Ten artists suggested possible paths towards the evolution of visual art, film and fashion.

The project is launched in September during the Vogue Fashion Night Out: the fashion films will be showcased in key venues around the city of Milan.

The collection THROUGH MY EYES will be screened in the “Off Contest” section during the three days of the Fashion Film Festival Milano 2016 and the audience will be able to enjoy the result of this original and fruitful twinning.

DON’T MISS THE DOCUMENTARY ABOUT ANNA PIAGGI

anna-piaggi

FFFMilano presents the premiere of the documentary “Anna Piaggi: A dreamer in the fashion world” by Italian director Alina Marazzi.

From the end of the 1960’s to the start of the new millennium, there was one figure in the world of fashion that embodied its spirit and told its story as it was happening: the journalist Anna Piaggi, one of the most important voices of the international fashion system.

Celebrated for her eccentric outfits and as an intimate friend of designers such as Karl Lagerfeld, Gianni Versace, Castelbajac and Manolo Blahnik, Anna Piaggi recognised the connection between art, society and culture that determined a new direction in fashion and defined its success on a global scale. The film, realised by the director Alina Marazzi, retraces the story of this amazing journalist via the capital cities of fashion – Paris, London, Milan – and makes use of precious archival footage, unpublished photos provided by the archives of Alfa Castaldi, her husband and noted fashion photographer, Ugo Mulas, Baldo Fabiani, and the testimonies of some of the most known designers in the world.

Alina Marazzi is a documentary and fiction film director. Un’ora sola ti vorrei (2002) is her first film, followed by Per Sempre and the feature film Vogliamo anche le rose. The investigation on female subjects that she already addressed in her previous works is at the center of Tutto parla di te with Charlotte Rampling, her latest fiction film.

DISCOVER ITALIAN EXPERIMENTAL FASHION FILMS OF THE 60s

screen-shot-2016-08-24-at-17-31-50

Italian experimental cinema arises in the second half of the 60’s thanks to a group of young filmmakers who were influenced by New American Cinema and acted against the entertainment production system, to create a cinema that could be a true expression of their dreams and desires. Changing the filming technique, cinema becomes an extension of the filmmakers’ subjectivity, shooting their “private diaries” and bringing their unconscious ghosts on the screen. The movement started to involve poetry, performances, representation and many different artists such as Mario Schifano, Marcello Piccardo, Bruno Munari and Ugo Nespolo.

The selection BODY&GARMENT opens a window onto fashion, in a dialogue between dressing and the naked body, between the woman as subject and as object.

FFFMilano presents it in its programme to express the connection between this kind of experimental cinema and nowadays fashion films.

Schifano, Nespolo, Munari and the others, fathers of our communication, presented fashion on screen through a research on film language, preparing the path that many young filmmakers – some of them in competition at the festival – are now following.

Curated by Archivio Nazionale Cinema d’Impresa and Cineteca Nazionale – Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia and in collaboration with Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Torino, Promovideo – Andrea Piccardo, Maurizio Corraini SRL, Ugo Nespolo, Archivio Franco Angeli; Archivio Mario Schifano.

The screenings will be introduced by the fashion journalist Renata Molho and by a representative from the Cineteca Nazionale.

THE PROGRAMME OF CONVERSATIONS

004_conversationBesides the screenings of the films in competition, Fashion Film Festival Milano and American Express present a series of talks to open a dialogue about the connections between fashion and the digital world, its evolutions and film adaptations.
