CELIA ROWLSON-HALL examines the collapsing beauty of nuclear winter in a provocative new short film for Miu Miu writes STEPHEN SHORT
(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.
