fashion designer agnès troublé a.k.a. agnès b. is a jack of all trades. the codes of urban subcultures are a hallmark of her designs, and she's an avid collector and supporter of art that's rooted in such a context. troublé may have also dipped her toe in the pool of cinema in the past, designing costumes for quentin tarantino's acclaimed pulp fiction, and in the role of producer for director harmony korine. but the designer has stepped up her cinema game and directed her first feature film. entitled je m'appelle hmmm..., the movie premiered at the prestigious venice film festival in 2013, and deals about an 11-year old runaway girl who escapes sexual abuse by hiding in a truck, and whose driver gradually evolves into a surrogate father. the movie will now see a special screening at amsterdam's eye fim institute on mon - mar 16 [9pm] in attendance of agnès troublé herself. on this occasion, the multi-tasking creative has designed a special range of products which will be on sale at venue's in-house shop, and includes a t-shirt, a tote bag, a scarf and notebooks. mind you, the screening will be launched with an interview conducted by fashion journalist milou van rossum, and is concluded by a chat with film journalist dana linssen. location: eye, ijpromenade 1 [amsterdam noord].
