FKA twigs film related news 2 days in a row…

Following yesterday’s announcement that the British singer will make her film acting debut in a USA-produced crime-drama titled “Brighton Beach” (named after the Brooklyn, NYC neighborhood), twigs is making her long-form directorial debut with a 52-minute film (last year, she wrote and directed a 17-minute short film titled “M3ll155x”).

Titled “Soundtrack 7,” the film is scheduled to make its World Premiere on August 3, at BAMCinématek theaters in Brooklyn, NYC.

The film was shot on location for the Manchester International Festival where twigs worked through a week-long residency last year.




Per BAMCinématek… Conceptualized as an abstract autobiographical piece, “Soundtrack 7” includes performances set to “How’s That”, “Ultraviolet,” and “Good to Love” among others, and is bound together by a striking, repeated recitation of Thomas Wyatt’s poem “I Find No Peace” (an excerpt from which opened twigs’ critically acclaimed LP1). Emphasizing the grit and physicality of dance, twigs describes her latest project as “flesh, sweat, feeling, muscle, and a live movement, no air brushing, no frills.”

The screening of “Soundtrack 7” will be preceded by her 2015 short film, “M3LL155X.” FKA twigs herself will be present for the event, and will take part in a Q&A afterward.

Tickets are on sale now at BAMCinématek’s website here.

No preview or trailer for the film at this time. Just the above poster art.
