MARGAUX | Vol.1 by Daniel Iglesias Jr.The kulturspace Foundation

What is a fashion film?
Conceptually, fashion films represent a hybrid lifestyle that spans several genres. Produced by brands, designers, storytellers and artists, they often feature fashion in the lead role or as a supporting character.

Made in America Documentary

Made in America is the latest installment of Remake’s 'Made In' video series. The film addresses President Trump's call to action of bringing manufacturing back to the U.S., uncovering the unregulated challenges behind the initiative. In the film, we go inside garment factories and connect with garment maker communities to listen and learn. The film humanizes the makers behind Made in USA clothing labels and inspires consumers and designers of tomorrow to use fashion as a force for good.

Zombies (2019-02-01) by BALOJIThe kulturspace Foundation

Zombies Emerging

A journey between hope and dystopia in a hallucinated Kinshasa, Zombie goes from the culture of the hair salon to a futuristic clubbing, from the urban parade to the glory of a dictator in campaign to a modern western.
And interrogates the almost carnal relationship we have with our phones, outgrowths of the hand giving us the talent of digital ubiquity...

Director: BALOJI

Boomerang (2018-05-25) by Matthew FrostThe kulturspace Foundation

Boomerang Direction

Many of us have declared our social media addictions of a waste of time, even as we endlessly scroll, retweet and like. But, as director Matthew Frost explores in his new short Boomerang, it’s not such an easy distraction to give up. A satirical look at social media addiction and the power of influencers, Boomerang stars Tully’s Mackenzie Davis as Jen, a woman who finds that quitting social media isn’t as easy as it seems.

Director: Matthew Frost

Dance (2017-12-20) by John-Michael TrianaThe kulturspace Foundation

Dance Style

A silent film for the digital age, DANCE explores the impacts of the digital age in the realms of self-perception, love, and, desire. Max, our antihero, is paradoxically consumed by both self-centeredness and an existential loneliness. Having ceded control of his social interactions to self-promotion in his perfectly curated world of social media, he finds himself craving something more. He meets Bliss, an enigmatic beauty, who is seemingly everything he has been searching for. But, as Max comes to realize he's chasing his own projection, he begins to question what is real, and is faced with a choice, does he dive back into the digital abyss or pursue a more classic means of finding love?

Director: John-Michael Triana

No Boundaries (2018-09-05) by Keenan NewmanThe kulturspace Foundation

No Boundaries Cinematography

Our story is a poem. Our story is a feeling. Our story is a mosaic of moments – a moving, visceral collage of colors & shapes, hollers & whispers, energetic & effortless expressions of kinetic life. Our story is not here on paper, it is out there in the streets – in the crisp wind at sunrise and beneath the flickering frenzy of the metropolis.

Join us as we fall into the wild tangle of our lives to share an expressive, kaleidoscopic poem – an ode to feeling both lost and found in a world with no boundaries.

Director: Keenan Newman
