After premiering at the 2015 Venice Film Festival, Agnes Varda’s 11-minute short “Les 3 Boutons” is now available online.
Part of Miu Miu’s Women’s Tales series, the elliptical anti-fairy tale features a defiantly practical farm-girl heroine (Jasmine Thiré), a magical dress that doubles as a cave, a visit to the big city and the three missing buttons alluded to in the short’s title.
Previous “Women’s Tales” contributors include Ava DuVernay, Miranda July, So Yong Kim, Lucrecia Martel, Hiam Abbass and Zoe Cassavetes. The shorts series is described by Miu Miu as a critical celebration of femininity in the 21st century. You can watch them all on the fashion brand’s site.
