'My Name Is Hmm
Treading the line between art installation and actual motion picture, “My Name Is Hmm” represents the directorial debut of fashion designer agnes b.. That is to say, it is “a film by Agnes Trouble aka agnes b.,” an intimate touch but one that suggests a difficulty regarding point-of-view. The onomatopoeia in the title should also tip you off that this is one of those pictures about exploring: the fashion mogul feels as if she’s learning bit by bit how to tell a story cinematically, how to complete transitions and flash back and forward, how to set a mood and tempo. It’s basically the rough cut of a student film which, to its credit, is also often more interesting than most student films outright.
