Plot
Seven young women. A mansion perched on a Cycladic rock.

A series of lessons on discipline, desire, discovery, and disappearance.

A melancholy, inescapable cycle on the brink of womanhood — infinitely.

The Project Conception
A distinguished international all-female cast is participating, including Ariane Labed, winner of the Coppa Volpi for Best Actress at the 2010 Venice Film Festival for Tsangari’s Attenberg, Clemence Poesy, known for her roles in the Harry Potter series and Danny Boyle’s 127 hours, and Isolda Dychauk, the lead in Sokurov’s Faust. Athina has curated an haute couture “capsule” for the DesteFashionCollection 2012, selecting works by young, avant-garde designers who boldly challenge the boundaries of fashion as wearable sculpture. The curated pieces feature in both her film and projection installation, The Capsule, re-agitating the ongoing, essential dialogue between cinema, fashion, and the fine arts.
The Film and the Installation
Athina Rachel Tsangari has created a film and an installation for the DesteFashionCollection 2012 entitled Capsule, a project commissioned by Greek art collector Dakis Ioannou in collaboration with Barneys creative director Dennis Freedman. The theme is based on a Greek Gothic Mystery, inspired by Polish artist Aleksandra Waliszewska. The installation opened at Barneys New York as one of the five window displays while the film was showcased in the Fall.
