St. Vincent has scored Kirsten Stewart’s short film ‘Come Swim’

The movie will premiere at Sundance next year

St. Vincent has provided the score for Kristen Stewart’s new short film, Come Swim.

The movie will premiere at Sundance film festival next year and is the first time Stewart has acted as director on a film.

Come Swim “was made as part of Refinery29’s female filmmaker-focused Shatterbox Anthology series”, according to Stereogum.

It has been described as “a diptych of one man’s day, half impressionist and half realist portraits”.

St. Vincent (whose real name is Annie Clark) tweeted about the news earlier. She preceded that message with another about another film project she’s been working on. “The horror short I co-wrote and directed will premiere at Sundance in January,” she wrote.

Clark is one of four writer-directors working on the upcoming horror anthology film XX. Karyn Kusama, Roxanne Benjamin, and Jovanka Vuckovic are also involved in the project.

 

Clark also recently appeared in a new music video from leading American fashion designer Marc Jacobs alongside Courtney Love and Missy Elliott.

The video, which was part of the designer’s latest campaign, also features Marilyn MansonSuicide Squad star Cara Delevingne and Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon. It was directed by Hype Williams and features the track ‘Love Honey, Love Heartache (Larry Levan Mix)’ by Man Friday.

Speaking to Billboard, which premiered the video, St Vincent likened the Hype Williams shoot to “an acid-trip Fellini film, 8½ or Satyricon”.
