While it still may be true that HBO is the place where “directors go to direct,” apparently a variable flood of filmmakers, and in this case a photographer, are making fashion-based short films their home between home.

WWD has revealed (via The Playlist) our first look at Elle Fanning in the upcoming Todd Cole-directed short film, THE CURVE OF FORGOTTEN THINGS. Cole will be helming the film for fashion house Rodarte, with the real kicker being the film’s score, which will be done by the impeccably impeccable Deerhunter. It is not known of the film will feature previously released tracks by the great band or if it will be new works, but at this point, it sounds like a really fantastic film, that joins works from the likes of Martin Scorsese, David Lynch, Gia Coppola, and upcoming spots from Darren Aronofsky and Sofia Coppola. Quite some solid company, no? Check out one more photo (and some more thoughts) after the break!

Personally, I love the look and feel of these photos. Fanning is a really fantastic actress, and while I’m not familiar with Cole’s work (a Google search can change that), it definitely looks like a really interesting short. 

Here’s the short’s synopsis:

“It’s inspired by Northern California, and the Seventies. It’s about this girl who exists in this strange place outside of time. She’s digging up things from the land and the past, and she offers them to the sun.”

The short will hit on Tuesday.
