A Day in the Life

3 Episodes

From 1960s Paris to contemporary New York City, two women juggle careers, relationships, and personal crises over the course of days in which nothing—and everything—happens. Myna Joseph’s elegantly shot, Big Apple–set short FIT MODEL follows a thirtysomething freelancer who works as everything from a babysitter to a stand-in for fashion models while also dealing with the physical and financial fallout of an accident. Joseph based her character’s city wanderings and fluid, fluctuating identity on Cléo, a singer who whiles away her day while awaiting confirmation of a cancer diagnosis in Agnès Varda’s real-time French New Wave touchstone CLÉO FROM 5 TO 7.
