Chloe x Halle are breathing shimmering new life into a Nigerian folktale.
The sister duo appears in Vogue‘s March 2021 issue, where filmmaker Julie Dash framed them with one very old story: A folktale that has been passed down by the Efik people of southeastern Nigeria about why the sun and moon live in the sky.
The video was shot on California’s picturesque Little Corona del Mar Beach.
Speaking of the project Dash said:
“The filming was physically grueling. Chloe and Halle had to walk half a mile across a stoney beach, wearing long gowns, in the cold morning and later in the heat. I don’t think they knew they were going to get wet, too!”
“They never complained. I was very familiar with the sisters, but did not know how sweet they were!”
Check out the stunning final result below…
