Taking home the Best Director Award at The Sarajevo Fashion Film Festival, winner of Best Fashion Film and Best Actress at the 2018 Cannes GSF Awards, winner of Best Actress, Best Narrative and Best Fashion at the 2017 La Jolla International Fashion Film Festival and nominated for nine IFFA awards , PEARL is eye-candy for lovers of beauty, fashion and decor!

Featuring award-winning couture fashion, curated from the Art Deco 1940s to the Kennedy Era and shot in stunning 8K, PEARL is guaranteed to inspire your imagination and touch your heart with her story.

SYNOPSIS: In the fall of 1943, Pearl, the unwanted infant daughter of a society couple, is thrust into the wary arms of her beautiful, stylish Grandmother.

Through the course of a lifetime, the two women learn an empowering lesson: each moment they’ve shared together is more precious than the rarest jewel.

PEARL is an empowering fairytale for our times; exploring the role that family plays in creating a unique sense of personal style and self-love. That is the very heart of our story.
