Bat For Lashes’ Natasha Khan directs short film about love

Khan's film is part of up-coming movie 'Madly'

Natasha Khan – better known as Bat For Lashes – has produced one of six short-film parts for the movie ‘Madly’, a film on the theme of love.

Khan’s segment is a fifteen minute short from the UK, with the film aiming to examine ‘six visions of modern love’ in visits to India, Australia, the USA, Japan, Argentina and Britain.

You can view the trailer for the movie on the official website, here.


Talking to Pitchfork, Khan described her work:

“It’s about a bride, the morning of her wedding, being disturbed by subterranean weird feelings, messages and signs. On the way to her wedding, something really crazy happens, and you’re left wondering whether she’s gonna go through with it. It’s all about redemption of grief, putting ghosts to bed before you can move into a fully committed relationship. It’s very countryside, weird, English, surreal.”

Khan’s part of the film is described on the official website as follows:

“Just in time for her wedding day, a young bride-to-be encounters a ghost from her past. She comes to welcome the encounter, allowing her to move forward with her new life.”

The singer is also working on ‘Gotcha’, a short film for Film4 commissioned last year, and worked on fashion movie ‘Under the Indigo Moon’, which she also starred in and soundtracked together with Beck. Khan has expressed her desire to move on to feature length productions.

Alongside Bat For Lashes, Khan has also produced a range of sportswear, launched in early 2014. Her Sexwitch project will launch their self-titled debut album on 25 September.
