Hello, Kitty!

Words: Gemma Lacey
Photography: Amber Mahoney

Few creatives seem as in control of their destiny the way Chloë Sevigny is, so it’s little surprise she’s now adding director to her impressive roster of skills. With Kitty debuting at Cannes, she tells us about her new foray into filmmaking, while making time for some fashion and feline chat too.

Watching Kitty, it’s clear Sevigny has employed her exceptional eye and endless good taste to create a romantic and entrancing short, welcoming us into her world through a sequence of dappled sunlight. Yet to focus purely on the aesthetics of the film detracts from the sophistication she has employed in bringing Paul Bowles’ story to life. Anyone who has read it will be moved by how true to his vision she’s been. Discovering his work at 19, she describes him as “godfather to the beats” and talks about how the story of Kitty held her interest ever since then.
