ELLE MAGAZINE – “Is this the trippiest fashion film ever made?”
INDIEWIRE – “A wildly inventive short feminist sci-fi!”
PASTE – “It’s no surprise that a collab between i-D and CHANEL produces serious eye candy, but the latest installment for their digital platform The Fifth Sense may be their most breathtaking yet.”
JellyWolf premiered on The Fifth Sense, a digital platform exploring scent and female creativity, starring Kiersey Clemons and Lisa Bonet
Natasha Khan (Bat for Lashes), Emile Haynie and Sexwitch provided the soundtrack
Written and directed by Alma Har’el, this eight-minute piece stars actresses Kiersey Clemons and Lisa Bonet in a magical futuristic version of downtown LA brought to life with beguiling special effects: the young Clemons sets out on a journey to discover her mythical spirit animal “JellyWolf” with the help of Bonet’s shamanic beauty parlor owner.
Carrying a box of mementos each inspired by key ingredients of CHANEL’s N°5 L’EAU, including lemon, wood and rose, Clemons’ character embarks on a visually spectacular synesthetic journey inspired by the memories each scent conjures. With each new vision she unlocks, she deepens her understanding of the woman she is,
as well as her connection to her passing grandmother and other women in her life.
Renowned musician Natasha Khan (Bat for Lashes) collaborated with Emile Haynie for the first time on JellyWolf’s opening track,
whilst the film’s main music is ‘Ha Howa Ha Howa’ by Sexwitch (Natasha Khan and TOY collaboration).
