Private Project

Red Carpet

A Hollywood star poses for her fans – on a red carpet of her own making.

Like the dripping violence of tabloids and media, where intrigue, crashes, injury and death take top billing, leading ladies and starlets have gracefully and always with a smile shed their blood on the silver screen and on the boulevards of Hollywood.

Director Biography - Nataša Prosenc Stearns

Nataša Prosenc Stearns is a Slovenian born filmmaker and video artist. Before moving to the US, she worked for the Slovenian television and its CNN branch. In Venice she started her production company Kanalya Pictures. Her films Souvenir, (released by Cinema Epoch), The Death of Socrates, (collaboration of 23 international filmmakers), Plato's Symposium (in post production), and others explore innovative strategies in storytelling and visual expression.

Nataša earned her BA at Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana, Slovenia. She moved to Los Angeles in 1997 on a Fulbright Grant for her MFA at CalArts. She represented Slovenia at the 48th Venice Biennale (Italy), is currently showing at the 56th Venice Biennale as part of the exhibition 20 Artists from Los Angeles, and showed her work at ARCO Madrid, at The Tel Aviv Museum of Art, in Doulon Museum of Art in Shanghai, etc.

Nataša's work spans across several fields: single channel videos and films, multichannel video installations, video objects and prints. Stylistically her work walks the line between concrete and abstract, often adding the components of surreal and ephemeral. Her work focuses on relationship between human body and nature in times dominated by cyber experiences, which tend to desensitize humans. It also explores physical and psychological limitations of human body.
