Crystal Moselle Debuts Short Film for Miu Miu’s “Women’s Tales”

by Paige Reddinger

Crystal Moselle, the acclaimed director behind the cult favorite documentary The Wolfpack, has been tapped by Miu Miu to create a short film for its ongoing Women’s Tales stories. The film, titled That One Day, also features a pack but this time it’s a gang of girls who bond over their shared love for skateboarding. How chic to skate in a pair of matching Miu Miu dresses, non? At the center of the film is Rachelle, a 17-year-old girl, who discovers a squad of fearless women who aren’t afraid to skate the same ramps and do the same tricks as the guys.

“I am in love with the transformation stage in a girl’s life,” said Moselle in a press statement, “when they are not quite a girl but not quite a woman. When I was in my transformation stage, as a young girl, Miu Miu was a big part of that story.” Moselle is also well-known for her viral video sensation Shapeshifting, which follows a group of 14-year-old ballerinas.

That One Day debuted yesterday at the Venice Film Festival “Venice Days” program, where Miu Miu’s Women’s Tales short-films have premiered since 2012. Other strong female directors to create short-films for Miu Miu include Ava DuVernay, Zoe Cassavetes, Alice Rohrwacher, and Naomi Kawase, to name just a few.
