London, 15th February 2023 - Written and directed by Mexican director Lila Avilés, “Eye Two Times Mouth” is the 25th commission from Miu Miu Women's Tales, the acclaimed short-film series that invites today's most profound and original female directors to explore vanity and femininity in the 21st century.
A refrain runs through the 25th episode based on a Japanese proverb: "The slight flutter of a butterfly's wing can be felt on the other side of the world". The metaphor is perfect for the story of Luz, a sensible and dedicated woman who dreams of transformation, much like a caterpillar morph into a chrysalis and then into a butterfly. Here, everything is connected: personal and mythic pasts, as well as the hands, ears, eyes, and mouth. As Lila Avilés remarks: «It's about the journey».
