Screen Style Series Pass
Screen Style

DECEMBER 79, FRIDAYSUNDAY
Presented in partnership with Seattle Met

A three-day, four-film series featuring the favorite movies of some of Seattle's top style and fashion tastemakers.

Curated by Seattle Met style editor Laura Cassidy, Seattle's first-ever fashion film series invites the city to take a look at the cinema that inspires the personal style and philosophy of Strath Shepard (Creative Director, Nordstrom, Land Management and Pacific Standard Magazine), Robin Held (Executive Director, Reel Grrls), Anna Telcs (artist and wardrobe designer) and Jill Wenger (owner, Totokaelo).

Expecting fashion docs and the Hitchcock flicks that always make the Best Dressed Movie lists? Don't. True to Seattle's different-drummer beat, the series includes films that skirt the direct issue of style but inform deep, personal notions of aesthetics, individual expression, daily uniforms and visual narratives.

Screen Style also includes a dialogue with series panelists led by Laura Cassidy: what do they see in these films and how does that view carry through to what goes on their bodies any given morning? How do movies color everyday worlds? How does Seattle and the style of the Northwest affect their personal dress code and their day-to-day design decisions?

Purple Noon

Presented in partnership with Seattle Met

Dec 07

(René Clément, 1960, France, 35mm, 118 min)

"I first saw Rene Clement's 1960 film Purple Noon when it was re-released in the mid-nineties by Martin Scorsese (it was skillfully re-made several years later as The Talented Mr. Ripley). The young Alain Delon is  to say the very least  as cold and calculating on screen as he is completely mesmerizing, and his impeccable style comes off as almost an endorsement of his evil ways. As the characters and their exposed ankles, printed shirts, and perfect accessories slither around the Mediterranean in brilliant Eastman color, it becomes clear what a style influence the film has been over the years  next spring and summer more than ever." -Strath Shepard, Creative Director for Nordstrom, Land Management and Pacific Standard Magazine

Rockers

Presented in partnership with Seattle Met

Dec 08

(Ted Bafaloukos, 1978, Jamaica, 35mm, 100 min)

"Presenting unparalleled street style in a heart warming story of thievery and redemption. Rockers captures a pivotal moment in Jamaican history as our unlikely heros (played by real life reggae musicians) battle more than just imperialism but the terrifying disco movement that was emerging on the scene in 1978! Come for the great dance moves and stay for the eternal sweater vest over Adidas track suit combo that has inspired legions.  Any great movie is an amazing style resource and Rockers has it all.  Self expression never sounded so good." -Anna Telcs, Seattle artist and wardrobe designer

The Passion of Anna

Presented in partnership with Seattle Met

Dec 09

(Ingmar Bergman, 1969, Sweden, 35mm, 101 min)

"I appreciate Ingmar Bergman's styling of the film The Passion of Anna. The film itself is quiet.  The fashion is quiet.  The silence creates the space to cover these beautiful and weighty themes around isolation and vulnerability. The styling works in that it gives little away  about the characters. I appreciate subtlety. Artists like Ingmar Bergman showed me that less is more. Trying to use too many materials or convey too much impact generally dilutes the entire message.  One good thing is enough.  Find something that's good and let everything else be background. This idea has largely impacted the way I approach style." -Jill Wenger, Founder, Managing and Creative Director, Totokaelo

Beau Travail

Presented in partnership with Seattle Met

Dec 09

(Claire Denis, 2000, France, 35mm, 90 min)

"Beau Travail is an all-male military hothouse under an unrelenting desert sun, where soldiers are in a constant state of preparedness, which includes freshly laundered and properly pressed uniforms. There are punishing rituals of authority, physical fitness, honor, readiness, and endurance under the cruel eye of the commander. Discipline and compliance with standards of personal appearance, judged by the commander, are essential to the corps d'esprit and military effectiveness, as well as personal and professional order and maintenance. The sun wilts the creases, the passions are unleashed, and the order unravels." -Robin Held, Executive Director, Reel Grrls
