#Legend - - GAME CHANGER -

(The [End) of His­tory Il­lu­sion] by Celia Rowl­son-Hall is the 14th com­mis­sion in the

Miu Miu Women’s Tales se­ries. The ac­claimed short films in­vite some of to­day's most pro­found di­rec­tors – in­clud­ing Agnès Varda, Chloë Se­vi­gny, Naomi Kawase, So Yong Kim and

Zoe Cas­savetes – to in­ves­ti­gate van­ity and fem­i­nin­ity in the 21st cen­tury. Through­out the films, Miu Miu col­lec­tions have be­come a cast of char­ac­ters in their own right.

A New York-based dancer, chore­og­ra­pher and film­maker, Rowl­son-Hall is best known for her chore­og­ra­phy for the tele­vi­sion show Girls, her work on mu­sic videos by Ali­cia Keys and MGMT, her bit­ter­sweet shorts in­clud­ing

The Au­di­tion and Prom Night, and her 2015 feature MA, a con­tem­po­rary, word­less retelling of the Vir­gin Mary's jour­ney through deserts and across dirt tracks.
