About Kitty

By Fabien Gaffez

Contemporary cinema has many idols, but few icons. Chloë Sevigny is among the few who, since Kids, knew how to jostle lines and boundaries in Hollywood: indie glamour, artistic freedom and puzzling good taste. Kitty, her first short film as a director, has all these qualities. Telling the story of a genuine metamorphosis, the film is as surprising as it is seducing. Borrowing fruity tale elements from Lewis Carroll, it also stays a personal film, evoking a mother and daughter relation with a prevailing and vivid feeling of abandon. Like all other paradises, childhood needs to be lost in order to exist.
