On the night of February 12 during the Miu Miu Women’s Tales event dedicated to New York Fashion Week, the director, screenwriter, and Polish producer Małgorzata Szumowska, premiere her short film entitled “Nightwalk” with the spectacular performance of Raffey Cassidy and the Polish model Filip Rutkowski.
Nightwalk is a silent story of two youths with different backgrounds sharing the weight of familial estrangement which begins as the protagonists embark on a life-changing stroll through the darkened streets of Warsaw, Poland. The once notoriously conservative city, now asleep, transforms into fields of liberation. The young girl and boy cross paths, sharing an immediate sense of understanding and reassurance of life within their rigid inherited gender roles. The film follows their simultaneous transformations, with building energy of excitement in their newly embodied freedom. Teen acting star Raffrey Cassidy, the fresh-face of young Snow White in Snow White and The Huntsman, brings her youthful innocence to the role of the daughter. No stranger to the house of Miu Miu, the brand’s AW18 campaign saw her modeling debut – all peachy flushed cheeks and smokey eyes, the perfect embodiment of the dark mystery and playful naivety that their collections encompass. Following her previous lead in Szumowska’s The Other Lamb, Cassidy’s work with the director continues to champion female empowerment in Miu Miu’s commission.
Of course, the night did not stop there. At the end of the screening, the moviegoers were off, jumping into the buses lining Second Avenue to be carried to dinner and then join the party with DJ Silvia Prada’s tracks.
