This year, Lief were awarded the commission to make the original film with emerging director Savanah Leaf. The story of ‘The 4th Wave’ was developed at Lief and the film written by Savanah, adding her cinematic surreal style to the format of documentary. On Tuesday night, Bvlgari & Vanity Fair hosted an exclusive cocktail reception and panel discussion around the film’s premiere in New York at Tribeca Film Festival.

Priestess

The film focuses on the journey of one woman, Priestess, living in the ‘Fourth Wave’, rising to the top of her industry and using the tools she has in the modern day to spread her message. She is fearless, bold, and determined. She uses her womanhood as an asset and builds herself a stage in male-dominated industries. The film was shot on location in Puglia Southern Italy and Los Angeles California.
