Tuesday 17th Jan: Grace LaDoja at LSFF "Evolve" Filmmaker Q&A

As part of London Short Film Festival the ICA invited director Grace LaDoja to show a retrospective selection of her moving image and talk thru her career to date.  Despite already knowing and having worked with Grace, I learnt so much about her that I didn't know!  It was fascinating and a fantastic opportunity to see her films on a large screen - including the first promos for Twigs which set her up as an artist, not just a musician & performer.  There were her famous videos for Skepta as his collaborator and manager with anecdotes on how the relationship came about and insight to the "brand" development.  As he's now been nominated for multiple Brit Awards its going to be a very interesting year as it was the same awards show where his performance concept triggered the controversy that ultimately gave him mainstream success!  In addition to this, Grace gave background to her long-standing consultancy for Supreme which will now be top of news forums even more than usual with today's unveiling of Luis Vuitton AW17 mens collection on the Paris runway!
