Part two of our Autumn Winter 16 collection is inspired by two dimensional views expressed through the lens of a photographer’s camera. So this season, we worked with The National Film and Television School (NFTS) to set students a challenge: to create a short film that celebrates our belief in Style & Truth.
Blown away by the response, we commissioned our favourite four, and the winning film premieres in Everyman cinemas across the country this month. Discover more about each film and watch their creative works…
TEACH A MAN TO FISH
Directed by Tom Day, produced by Ian Packard, cinematography by Daniel Atherton
A fashionable greenhorn (the newest crewman) has found his way to a crab fishing trawler on the English coast. Predictably at first, the fashionable addition to the boat doesn’t fit in, but his work ethic is strong. As the greenhorn learns from the crew, the crew’s attitude and luck start to change.
Directed and produced by Grace Harper-Brighouse, co-directed and co-produced by Anna Snowball and Eleanor Mortimer
A sequence of poignant, short documentaries exploring the emotional connections we have with our clothes and the memories they can evoke. Real Jigsaw customers tell personal stories of love and loss, recreating moments captured in old photographs.
TIME IS FOREVER
Co-directed by Joasia Goldyn and Edurne Bargueno, produced by Khaled Gad
This atmospheric comedy sees a doctor running a therapy session to help a group of fashionista vampires to understand the value of timelessness and quality in clothes.
THE ONE AND ONLY
Directed by Weronika Tofilska, produced by Natalia Guarin, cinematography by Krzysztof Trojnar
At first glance, three sets of identical twins are hard to tell from one another. But we soon to find out that there is nothing identical about them. In a series of documentary portraits we hear the unique bond they share and how they found their individual taste and style through the years.
THE TALENT NURTURER
