“[I was]inspired by my first home, where I still live. It is a shrine to experiences.” – Dakota Fanning
Dakota Fanning’s directorial debut, Hello Apartment, is the 15th commission from Miu Miu Women’s Tales, the acclaimed short-film series by women who critically celebrate femininity in the 21st century.
Dakota who entered the public consciousness with her award winning performance in I Am Sam, when she was just six-years-old. Since then, not only she transitioned into adult roles, but also faced her first directorial experience: “I needed to scare myself a little.” She adds that, “Miu Miu feels like a family to me. It’s been a real joy to incorporate all the different looks.” This episode of new Women’s Tales is a tender portrait of a young woman Ave, skipping sensually over days, months and years. It reminds us that we write ourselves into our surroundings. The scars are our stories.
