In this sun-soaked film directed by Kava Gorna, Mariel Hemingway and daughter Langley Fox get behind the wheel of red-hot 560 SL in search of a lost beach, and find each other along the way.
14 May is Mother’s Day in 55 countries, and in honour of this special holiday, She’s Mercedes is celebrating motherhood with an original video about the messy, sometimes complicated but ultimately redeeming connection between mother and child.
Following real-life mother-daughter duo Mariel Hemingway and Langley Fox, director Kava Gorna takes us on a journey through the winding roads of their relationship. United by their shared history, their love for each other, and (relative) patience with one another’s eccentricities, Hemingway and Fox drive a 1987 560 SL along California’s stunning Malibu Canyon and Pacific Coast Highway in pursuit of a place both metaphorical and physical that was lost long ago.
