A cherubic-faced young girl runs through a grand New England home, exploring newly-sprouting whiskers and the beginnings of cat claws. Would you expect anything less whimsical for the teaser trailer for Chloe Sevigny's directorial debut?
Taking her first turn behind the lens, Sevigny has adapted the Paul Bowles' short story, Kitty, a 15-minute short film that has been making the rounds on the festival circuit in which a young girl slowly transforms into a kitten.
"I've been wanting to direct Kitty for 20 years," the actress-turned-director told press. "I wanted to do a kind of throwback to kind of those 80s films where they had an element of practical effects and makeup and stuff. I thought it was so visual and cinematic and so delicate I could make a really beautiful whisper of a film."
Sevigny posted a teaser trailer to her Instagram page earlier this week. What do you think?
