Miu Miu: Women’s Tales at Venice Days

Miu Miu 1Wouldn’t it be nice to be Miuccia Prada? For many reasons of course, but mostly because her life seems so filled with stimulating, cultural activities and intellectual pursuits – like tomorrow, when she will celebrate the film series, Miu Miu: Women’s Tales, a collection of short films by female directors, at Venice Days. This, for those less culturally astute than Ms Prada, this is a film festival, part of the larger Venice Film Festival, celebrating the best of independent directorial talent. Naturally, Miuccia will be joined by the creme de la creme of the film and art world, including Stacy Martin, Hailee Steinfeld, Alfonso Cuaròn and Dakota Johnson, to name but a few. Premiering at the festival are two of the latest short films in the series – “De Djess” directed by Alice Rohrwacher, and “Les 3 Boutons” by Agnès Varda. You can watch a short preview of Varda’s film at – it features goats being milked, a floating dress and magical buttons. So basically, why would you not?
