The Wardrobe, 35mm, 13.5 minutes, 2010
In this modern retelling of the Bluebeard Fairy Tale, Justine embarks on a new life with her glamorous lover, Henri. Shopping sprees and beauty treatments slowly turn her into his perfect woman – just like the mannequins he keeps in his attic. A little bit Twilight Zone, a little bit Vertigo, this is a tribute to every makeover montage in every movie where you prefer the “before.”
This short (13.5 minutes) film was shot on 35mm film in Chicago, and premiered in 2010 at the Big Screen festival at Columbia College Chicago, where it won the prize for best cinematography. Festival screenings to date include the Cannes Short Film Corner, Egofest, the Chicago International Reel Shorts festival, the Columbia College Alumni Showcase at the Sundance Film Festival, the Praire District Neighborhood Association New Visions Film Festival, the 2010 College Art Association Conference and the University Film and Video Association Conference.
The screenplay was adapted (with permission) from Danielle Wood’s short story by the same name in her collection Rosie Little’s Cautionary Tales for Girls.
