The Rodarte sisters release a trailer for their first film

May 9, 2017

Rodarte designers and sister Kate and Laura Mulleavy announced last year that they would be directing their first feature film, and now the first trailer has been released. The film, titled Woodshock, stars actress and longtime fan of the fashion brand, Kirsten Dunst.

The trailer is the first look at the movie, and primarily shows Dunst in a variety of settings, including in a moody forest and various interiors. It also depicts her experimenting with marijuana.
Dunst will star in the film as Theresa, a woman using marijuana to cope with a recent loss. The film, which is not only directed but also written by the Mulleavy sisters, is produced by A24, the same studio responsible for recent Best Picture winner Moonlight. Woodshock is expected to arrive in theaters on September 15.

The sisters have dabbled in film before but this will be their first time directing and writing a film. The designers most notably created tutus and other looks for the 2010 Oscar-winning drama Black Swan, and they have also drawn upon classic films as inspiration for their designs. Rodarte’s Fall 2014 collection featured iconic Star Wars imagery. The sisters also designed the costumes for Woodshock.
This isn’t the only big upcoming project for the fashion label. Rodarte will also be the subject of an exhibit at the National Museum of Women in the Art. Celebrating the museum’s 30th anniversary, the exhibition will debut in the fall of 2018.
