Director Haifaa Al-Mansour, considered as the first female Saudi filmmaker collaborate with fashion luxury brand MIU MIU to create the 16th episode of MIU MIU's WOMEN'S TALE series.




 "The Wedding Singer's Daugther" It’s nighttime in 1980s Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Glittery and glamorous heels climb out of cars. Women shrouded in traditional black abayas make their way into a wedding hall. There, they reveal what’s underneath: dazzling dresses and wild hair. Their true selves set free, unseen by male gaze. There are strict segregation rules in Saudi weddings. All eyes and ears are on the wedding singer; until the electricity cuts out suddenly. “This is the worst wedding singer ever,” guests mutter, condescendingly. Will the young daughter manage to save her mother’s dignity? Haifaa Al-Mansour is based in Los Angeles.

SHORT FILM - MIU MIU PRESENTS WOMEN'S TALES "HELLO APARTMENT" DIRECTED BY DAKOT FANNING

Here is the latest chapter of MIU MIU WOMEN'S TALES titled "Hello Apartment" directed by Dakota Fanning. It features Eve Hewson, Tom Sturridge and Christina Rouner.
"Hello Apartment" is written by Liz Hannah (co-writer of Steven Spielberg’s Academy Award nominated The Post). Liz describes the short’s idea as, “reliving your past while going through what’s happening in your life now, in one space.” Dakota says the story, “was inspired by my first home, where I still live.
It is a shrine to experiences.” Asked if she envisages ever leaving her current place, she replies, “I’ve a hard time letting go. What happens to all those memories?” On her first experience as a director, Dakota admits, “I needed to scare myself a little.” She adds that, “Miu Miu feels like a family to me. It’s been a real joy to incorporate all the different looks.
This episode of new Women’s Tales is a tender portrait of a young woman, skipping sensually over days, months and years. It reminds us that we write ourselves into our surroundings. The scars are our stories. Decades later, a much older Ava returns to the same space, the same sun streaming though the large windows, and the memories flood back. “Hello apartment.”
