KENZO presents a new film by the acclaimed writer/director, Sean Baker, entitled “Snowbird“, featuring the KENZO Spring/Summer 2016 collection from Creative Directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim.
Snowbird traces the journey of a young woman (Abbey Lee) through a debrisscattered desert community, sharing her homemade cake with the residents along her route. Snowbird is equal parts daydream, elegiac wanderlust, and subtle comedy.
Snowbird‘s focus is on the narrative and eschews the glitz and glamour of fashion. Even the time period is subjective. The film captures real people in their own surroundings together with actors known for myriad indelible achievements in film history.
Coming off of his critically acclaimed feature Tangerine, a dramatic slapstick slice of life of two Los Angeles trans women, Baker filmed Snowbird in a similar method – it was shot entirely on iPhone.
