My Place: Tavi Gevinson

Director Barbara Anastacio captures 19-year-old writer and editor Tavi Gevinson in her bijou NYC flat, amongst David Bowie and Cocteau Twins records and a copy of Marlene Maurhoff’s Sulamith Wülfing, gifted to her by Stevie Nicks. After a meteoric rise to fame as an 11-year-old fashion blogger, Gevinson founded Rookie, a feminist online magazine for teenage girls, and recently landed on Time’s Most Influential Teens list. 

Anastacio catches the multi-talented Gevinson in a reflective mood, a year after the native Chicagoan has moved to New York, having taken up a role in the first Broadway production of comedy This is Our Youth, alongside Michael Cera and Kieran Culkin.
