Fashion impresario Diane Pernet presents the second annual ASVFF 2009, A Shaded View on Fashion Film. The festival features work by Erwin Olaf, Steven Klein, Chris Cunningham, and more. Making its debut at the festival, Olaf’s film Dusk shows a tableaux vivant of an African American Family set within the background of the city of New York. Originally pursuing a career in journalism, Olaf has always been interested in exploring issues of gender, sensuality, humour, despair and grace.
Screenings will run at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris on September 25, 26, and 27, 2009. The final awards ceremony will be held at the Centre Pompidou on October 8, 2009 with special guest fashion designer Rick Owens.
