RESET's Coralie Fargeat Makes Spot Directorial Debut For Nike, W+K
“Rallying Cry,” a Nike spot celebrating female determination and persistence, marks the ad directing debut of Coralie Fargeat who comes fresh off of her first feature film, Revenge.
Shot in Thailand, the Nike commercial highlights women breaking barriers in sports and captures the power behind them. It is a call to action, encouraging women to make the world listen. The tagline of the spot is “The louder we play, the more we change the game.”
“Rallying Cry” features such notable athletes as tennis champion Serena Williams, boxer Tayla Harris, and soccer star Samantha Kerr.
The aforementioned Revenge, a gory thriller, has been praised for flipping the traditional “rape revenge” genre and in turn, empowering the main female character. Fargeat’s unique eye and ability to tell female stories made her a perfect fit for this Nike spot.
RESET added Fargeat to its roster earlier this year. In addition to Revenge, Fargeat is also behind the short films Reality + and The Telegram, both of which earned various awards during their festival circuit runs.
