“There is no better bond than ours: female friendship and mutual support from childhood on.”
“For this year’s International Women’s Day, She’s Mercedes tells a story of feminine energy and female unity, envisioning a utopian community based on diversity, warm fellowship and a regal attitude, starring Malaysian musician Yuna.
Between cactus fields and green hills a tale unfolds that plays with the viewers’ perception of dream and reality. Over the course of the film, an invisible bond brings the four protagonists together. They meet in a magical place that serves as a visual interpretation of an inspiring, connecting and empowering bond between our heroines. Only to be interrupted by a surprising, final plot twist that sheds new light on their friendship…
She’s Mercedes is an initiative dedicated to inspiring, connecting and empowering women who are driven to make things happen.”
