Music video director Daniel Wolfe makes his feature film debut with Catch Me Daddy, a gritty thriller set on the edge of the Yorkshire moors. His memorably grim drama, co-written with brother Matthew, offers a hellish vision of what can happen when a young girl’s lifestyle conflicts with the strict values of her Pakistani family.
In this exclusive clip, Laila (Sameena Jabeen Ahmed) shows off her dance moves to Patti Smith’s ‘Land’ while her boyfriend Aaron (Conor McCarron) looks on – it’s a scene the director has called “the heart of the film”. The actress had never danced before, so Wolfe drafted in FKA Twigs to help her hone her moves and overcome the awkwardness of having to throw shapes on a packed film set. As you’ll see, the results are pretty special.
Catch Me Daddy opens in UK cinemas this Friday (February 27).
