CHRLX Beauty Member Charlie Wan Directs “Lean on Me” with Isaies Santamaria Perez & Lilja Rúriksdóttir….

May 10, 2016

Building on its platform for the confluence of talent, CHRLX Beauty reunited with award-winning director Charlie Wan to create “Lean On Me“.

The 8-minute fashion film debuted in three sold-out shows at TriBeCa Cinemas during last month’s Fashion Week. It was conceived and directed by Wan, working closely with fellow collective member and Director of Photography Pete Konczal. It features contemporary dancers Lilija Rúriksdóttir & Isaies Santamaria Perez dressed in exquisite pieces by Herve Leger, Diane Von Furstenberg and Azzedine Alaia. Loni Landon and Gregory Dolbashian provided the poetic, expressive choreography.

“Charlie’s approach was fresh and risky,” said Konczal of his first collaboration with Wan. “He wanted to really light the stage, to let the dancers move and exist in this environment. We kept the camera on a dolly, rolling freely with no track, so the dancers could transition through the light and be affected by it. This collective as a whole is very much driven by a like-mindedness, a desire to take chances.”
