Saint Laurent will launch the fifth edition of its ongoing Self project here this week, this time inviting Hong Kong’s best-known film director Wong Kar Wai and the acclaimed photographer Wing Shya to co-create a film.
The series, launched a year ago, sees Saint Laurent creative director Anthony Vaccarello work with various creative figures to capture different aspects of the Saint Laurent personality through art and social commentary. Previous projects have partnered with Daido Moriyama, Vanessa Beecroft, Bret Easton Ellis, and Gaspar Noé.
This latest rendition comes in the format of a film titled “A Night in Shanghai” and depicts the model Ju Xiaowen walking on a wire.
It “is a story about the introspective research of ourself, which starts from breaking the balance,” according to the brand
A 15-second trailer was released in anticipation of its unveiling later this week. The short movie will be screened at Yuz Museum in Shanghai, accessible to the public from Nov. 22 to Nov. 24. The on-screen installation will be on view at the Yuz Museum in Shanghai.
