The Céline Sciamma Coming-Of-Age Trilogy Blu-ray Box Set is a Blu-ray collection of three coming-of-age films by filmmaker Céline Sciamma. It was officially released in South Korea for the first time in the world. Naissance des pieuvres(Water Lilies) (2007), Tomboy (2011), and Bande de filles (Girlhood) (2014). The protagonists of each movie go on a journey near and far to find their true 'self'. Inwardly, they feel a range of emotions and search for their true identity, and outwardly, they express the bonds, jealousies, and desires that arise from their relationships with the people around them. We wanted to create a mood of these unsettling, exciting, and beautiful times. Grand slang is a very beautiful typeface that we used for this task. We wanted to express imperfection by giving this perfect typeface a purposeful twist, so we transformed Grand slang into long, shadowy, tense typography to represent the complexities of growing up that we all experienced.
