Last week, Laura and Kate Mulleavy, the designers behind Rodarte, premiered their debut film Woodshockto the raves at the Venice Film Festival. Starring Kirsten Dunst as Theresa—a woman who helps her ailing mother die using poisoned medical marijuana from the dispensary where she works—the film invites viewers to get lost with her in the maze of California’s redwood forests, which act as a metaphor for the depths of Theresa’s grieving subconscious. It is both trippy, and sublime, like the best of the sisters’ designs, as captured in these behind the scene images by the great American photographer Nan Goldin. See them here.
