SITGES FILM FESTIVAL
Activity description - 2023
Initiative for the international promotion of acting talent identifying emerging values within audiovisual production.
BLOOD RED CARPET presents:
FASHION VICTIMS. FASHION HORROR.
“Horror loves fashion, and fashion loves horror. From the ghoulish fashion photographer of Vogue stalwart Guy Bourdin to the Trussardi fashion parade Dario Argento directed in the mid-80s (complete with a model being dragged off the catwalk in a body bag), horror and high fashion in particular have long been perverse bedfellows. Fashion brings an added spectacle to horror’s focus on transgressive (usually female) bodies, our focus on clothing often making us acutely aware of the flesh that lies hidden underneath. And, as demonstrated in a small but impressive subgenre of sorts, the fashion world has proven to be a rich source of inspiration for filmmakers who have chosen to set their dark tales against a backdrop of the industry.”
This text by Alexandra Heller-Nicholas perfectly encapsulates what this talk will be about. Alongside the film critic, author, and academic, we will discuss all of these topics.
