A TALE OF ENDURANCE: CELEBRATION OF THE IMPERFECT 

FASHION FILM / IRO PARIS / AUG 2017

Created on spec for French fashion label IRO Paris this fashion short film is a celebration of color, race and women and is meant to send an empowering and disruptive message about preexisting gender norms and racial stereotypes. Inspired by the interchangeability of IRO’s clothes between the sexes, androgyny and identity are central themes in this badass, feminist zombie liberation saga.

 

Logline

Trapped in an abandoned dungeon the badass heroine IRO manages to free herself and a band of zombielike misfits from captivity.
