Chloë Sevigny is making her directorial debut at Cannes Film Festival this year with a short film about kittens. Kitty follows a young girl who really dreams of being a cat, before one day, she wakes up as one. "I chose the story because it had an element of magical realism to it that is something that I always have enjoyed watching, as a viewer, in films,” she explained in an interview with The Cut. "I wanted to do kind of a throwback to kind of those 80s films where they had an element of practical effects and makeup and stuff."

Kitty will be screened at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
