Director: Michele Bizzi
Sandy, who feels too ugly to be loved, goes on a dreamlike journey to understand that beauty is a state of mind.
Sandy thinks she’s a monster and does not feel loved by anyone. The girl is tormented by nightmares of monstrous and beautiful people. She cannot open up to her therapist Mara in order to understand that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But in a moment between a dream, a magic spell and a great display of affection, Mara convinces Sandy to finally see herself for what she really is: a princess. Thus, Sandy will go out to face the real world and find out that a thousand possibilities are just around the corner: a boyfriend, a job in the fashion world.
The fashion film Princess is part of a bigger project that Kinedimorae developed with a class of disabled teenagers.
We explored the concept of “fashion” and the world of fashion in its intrinsic dualism between integrative and distinctive function. “Integration” as feeling part of a group that accepts diversity without approval. “Distinction” as an affirmation of one’s identity in accepting one’s own diversity.
Fashion is already accepting diversity and in 2019 the main brands in the sector want different things and above all they no longer require stereotyped icons, but are people labeled as different ready to accept themselves?
