State Of Dreaming: Act I

Originally a novel written by Jeffrey Eugenides, The Virgin Suicides explores the secret lives of the Lisbon sisters through the eyes of the boys in their neighborhood. With its dream-like aesthetic and haunting soundtrack, The Virgin Suicides, written and directed by Sofia Coppola, became a cult classic. We decided to take inspiration from the film, but instead showcase the dream-like aesthetic with people of color, thus revamping the 90s movie’s style to reflect what our society looks more like today with more varied skin tones. State of Dreaming: Act I exemplifies the disillusionment the Lisbon girls’ experienced at school, while also showcasing the boy all of the Lisbon sisters came to idolize before their demise, Trip Fontaine.
