Chloe Sevigny talks to Vanity Fair about directing her first film, a short called “Kitty” which is premiering at Cannes.
“I’ve been approached by fashion brands who want me to direct commercials, but I wanted my first thing to not be attached to something like that,” says Sevigny. “I don’t have a handbag or sunglasses [sponsor] in it. I wanted it to be clear form. I don’t want to be a commercial maker. I want to be a filmmaker first. And then the inevitable selling out much later.”
