The tale of Red Riding Hood is universally known, and the Red Tales Project consists of eight directors who will each give their version of the story through a movie.

The historical basis is the same for all filmmakers working on Red Tales, however, anyone is free to deliver his vision of the story, and can place the characters in whatever environment he so choose.

The tales of Perrault and Grimm are already very different, as each director working on the project has his own sensitivity and interpretation with various features. The questions must also be posed as to why there is only male directors on the project. Apparently, the tale of Little Red Riding Hood is considered a female initiatory tale, a metaphorical passage of a little girl becoming a woman. This tale does not affect men in the same way, and makers wanted to see these adaptations from this perspective.
