“Farewell to Summer”
A 16mm short film for SISTER by Caitlin Shannon & Gianna Mazzeo.
Creative duo, and Melbourne-based cool cats, Caitlin Shannon and Gianna Mazzeo, created a film shot for independent label SISTER. The short, shot on 16mm film stock, was formed from a crew and cast of some talented and dynamic women, including the designers.
SISTER, a young Melbourne brand, based at Homework Studios in Brunswick, has quickly succeeded in being recognised by other sisters across the globe. The two talented women behind the brand, Emma Cutri and Alice McIntosh, began the business combining their skills to make pieces for their creative friends. Caitlin Shannon and Gianna Mazzeo formed along the same path to create this film.
“We wanted the film to reflect how the very roots of the brand started, bringing together nine beautiful women of various creative backgrounds”
The film epitomises a surreal sun drenched scenario wherein passion fruits are the very object of each girl’s desire. Each year they meet together with an unspoken connection as they slurp, suck, and playfully interact with the passion fruits. From the seeds they repeat the tradition by planting them back into the ground and waiting for the vine to grow until next year when they meet again…
