Kenzo creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon aren’t new to making cool decisions or making films. They worked with Spike Jonze, Natasha Lyonne, Carrie Brownstein, Khalil Joseph and more on fashion films and have made a feature with Kirsten Dunst. This time, they’re giving young international directors a platform in Kenzo Season Zero.
Filmmakers Mati Diop, Baptist Penetticobra and Eduardo Williams were given the question “How do we inhabit Earth today?” to prompt their work.
