St Vincent to score Kristen Stewart’s directorial debut

Come Home will be a ‘diptych of one man’s day, half impressionist and half realist portraits’

St Vincent has composed the soundtrack for Kristen Stewart’s upcoming directorial debut Come Swim. 

The short film is premiering at next year’s Sundance Film Festival, and has been described as “a diptych of one man’s day, half impressionist and half realist portraits”. St Vincent – AKA musician Annie Clark – announced her involvement in the project on Twitter yesterday.  

Clark’s own directorial debut, the feminist horror film XX, is also set to premiere at the festival. The singer announced the project, which she directed and wrote along with three other filmmakers, earlier this year. 

“The films in this year’s festival show the human sides of issues, people and places we don't often see,” explained Sundance director John Cooper. “Independent filmmakers, with their fearless, bold perspectives, are challenging us to witness our world’s whole story.”

Stewart’s Come Swim is part of Refinery29’s ‘Shatterbox Anthology’, a new series focused on female-led filmmaking. Twelve directors, writers and animators are taking part in the project – including Chloë Sevigny, who kicked it off last month with her surreal short Kitty.

Sundance Film Festival will run from January 19-29, 2017
