My Fancy High Heels

Taiwan 2010

My Fancy High Heels is an experimental documentary that traces fashion to its materials, and through the production chain, revealing the troubling process that haunts the latest trends. While not pointing her finger at obvious villains, director Chao-ti Ho reveals very visible victims. From its opening delight in a pair of high heels on Manhattan sidewalks to its ambiguous animated conclusion, Ho raises issues with gentle intensity and sometimes disturbing images.
