Miu Miu is back at Giornate degli Autori for the ninth year running during the Venice Film Festival. As always, its renowned Women'ìs Tales showcase exploring vanity and the female condition in the 21st century will be bringing some of the most intense and original women filmmakers today to the Lido. Anticipation is mounting for the arrival of directors Małgorzata Szumowska and Mati Diop on Sunday, September 6th in the Sala Perla, to present their respective shorts #19 Nightwalk e #20 In My Room.
In keeping with tradition, the screening will be followed up by a series of conversations at the Hotel Excelsior, in the Veneto Region Space and the Italian Pavilion - Tropicana Conference Room. Stepping up to the stage will be rising young actresses familiar from hit TV series and soon to appear to hotly-awaited upcoming films.
As she has every year, British journalist Penny Martin, editor-in-chief of The Gentlewoman, will be moderating all four talks.
