So Yong Kim directs the seventh short film for Miu Miu’s Women’s Tales.
Miu Miu announce the newest addition to their acclaimed short-film series by women who critically celebrate femininity. “Spark and Light” stars Riley Keough as Elizabeth, a young girl on her way to visit her hospitalised mother when her car slides of the road, whilst waiting for help Elizabeth falls asleep and we follow her as she dreams.
It’s the seventh commission from Miu Miu Women’s Tales and is redolent of So Yong Kim’s previous features—such as For Ellen, Treeless Mountain and In Between Days. Kim explores themes of family and the transition from childhood to adulthood, “I’ve always been obsessed with family dynamics,” says the Korean born American writer and director, “I’m always trying to develop my understanding of that.”
The entire archive of films can be viewed on the Miu Miu website, alongside exclusive interviews with the directors and behind-the-scenes footage.
