Three Minutes with Mariacarla (January 2012, Paris)

starringMariacarla Boscono

When working with Mariacarla Boscono, I asked her to sit in front of the Super-8 camera for three minutes (the length of a single roll of super-8 flm) unedited, to do what she wanted to do. In a glittering suit by her friend Riccardo Tisci (for Givenchy), she gave me a range of expression, but always a bit on the dark and disturbing side. I think there is an honesty, a vulnerability even, in her eyes towards the final seconds.
