Chanel Iman's first short film
Chanel Iman has made her forst foray into film, in a short piece by Jenna Elizabeth called Thirst. The film, produced by BULLETT in collaboration with accessories designer Reece Hudson, is very stylish, but it's hard to make much of Chanel's acting ability it is shot so darkly. It's not just the visuals that are dark. In the film, Iman finds her lover cheating on her and proceeds to poison and then... torture him? Play with the body? I'm not sure.
It was shot in the beautiful interiors of the Lafayette House, and the magazine describes it thusly:
"After catching her lover with another woman, Iman draws a vial from her gold, snakeskin clutch and surreptitiously dispenses poison into his drink. Dim lighting and an eerie tune further emphasize the creepiness factor as Iman indiscriminately drags her stiletto heel and various surgical instruments along the skin of her unconscious lover. Statement bags and accessories created by Reece Hudson held the delicate torture devices and accentuate Iman's daring looks."
Yep. That's what I thought.
As for Elizabeth, she is a New York-based director and photographer, and the granddaughter of jazz drummer Chuck Flores. She claims musicians among her favorite subjects to shoot and music always plays a big role in her projects. She has worked with Kanye West, Julian Casablancas and Willie Nelson.
