A fashion film may not be the most obvious choice for a followup to the critically-acclaimed Tangerine, but that’s exactly what director Sean Baker is offering with his latest endeavor. Commissioned by KENZO and featuring the label’s Spring/Summer 2016 styles, Snowbird stars Abbey Lee — fresh off her role in Best Picture nominee Mad Max: Fury Road — as Young Theo, a young woman living in a remote desert community. Shot on site in Slab City in the Sonoran Desert northeast of San Diego, the film coincides with KENZO’s corresponding campaign for the season at hand.

And like Tangerine before it, Snowbird was shot entirely on an iPhone. “It removes all the intimidation,” said Baker in an interview with The New York Times. “It feels like we’re shooting a home movie or a selfie… You have to consider this iPhone just as important as a 35-millimeter camera, or we lose from Day 1. You have to take it even more seriously.”
