Miu Miu celebrates self-acceptance in latest Women's Tales film

Feb 17, 2020

On the night of February 11, Italian fashion house Miu Miu assembled a crowd of the best dressed movie-goers in New York City for a private screening of the latest chapter of its Women's Tales short film series.

Miu Miu

Premiered at the Village East Cinema, attendees were treated to pop corn, wine-flavored gummy candies and mini bottles of brut, before making their way into the theater.

Shot in Warsaw, Poland and directed by polish film director Małgorzata Szumowska, 'Nightwalk' is a nearly nine-minute film described by the brand as "a symphonic portrait of young struggle against family and social expectations," and the 19th chapter of the Women's Tales series.

Entirely without dialogue, the film opens by introducing viewers to two young characters: one, slated as simply "the girl," (Raffey Cassidy) wears a ruffle-adorned, salmon-colored skirt and green knee-high boots and stares daggers into the side of her impeccably chic, martini-drinking mother's head, while the other, "the boy," (Filip Rutkowski) sits shirtless in the family living room as his father watches soccer on TV, only prying his eyes away to cast the occasional suspicious glance at his child.

The girl and the boy then escape their homes, "[embarking] on a journey of transformation" as they runway walk through the night's empty streets, tossing off their clothing and "[shedding] their inherited gender layers" in favor of looks that suit their true selves: a baggy red tracksuit for the girl and gold earrings, an off-the-shoulder black sweater, a purple fishtail hem skirt and pumps -- that were custom made for Rutkowski --f or the boy.

“The inspiration for 'Nightwalk' is my friend Filip Rutkowski," Szumowska said. "He’s genderqueer, and he expresses himself by wearing women’s clothes. In Poland—a conservative, Catholic country—Filip is extremely brave.”

According to the director, she believes the Women's Tales series shows how “you can use fashion to do something important, that supports women, and promotes tolerance.”
The screening was capped with a brief Q&A with Szumowska, Cassidy and Rutkowski, followed by a dinner and after-party at Ludlow House, attended by celebrities like Chloe Sevigny, Anna Baryshnikov, Ella Hunt, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet and Olympia Scarry.

Other past Women's Tales directors and stars have included Celia Rowlson-Hall, Brigitte Lacombe, Miranda July and Ava DuVernay.
