(1980) “It’s probably the most difficult art form there is,” remarks the director of a commercial for pantyhose, in which model Apollonia must hold her leg in the air, just so, over and over. At Zoli’s modelling agency, 5 feet 6 ½ is too short, and Calvin Klein jeans look down on Times Square. 16mm. Approx. 129 mins.
