Sia is co-directing a documentary about her own life

The elusive singer will be lifting the mask in ‘The Untitled Sia Documentary Project’ directed by herself and Erik Anders Lang

Last week, we reported that Australian musician and Dazed favourite Sia Furler had just finished writing the screenplay for upcoming film Sister, which will star dance muse Maddie Ziegler and be directed by Sia herself.

As it turns out, Sister isn’t the only directorial project that the artist will be lending her talents to. According to Deadline, Sia and director Erik Anders Lang (who is also her husband) have teamed up to make a documentary about the singer’s life. So far, the film is being referred to as The Untitled Sia Documentary Project, and knowing Sia, it will probably keep that title.

Until now, the famously elusive visionary has kept a wall between her work and her private life, often choosing to hide her face during performances and interviews, and instead letting her artwork speak for itself. 

However, we have been able to gleam an insight into her history through her music, lyrics and visuals, which have often explored ideas of personal struggle and self-destruction. Her incredible video for “Chandelier”, for example, embodies the unhinged despair surrounding her own experiences with addiction. “I thought it would be really fucking cool to have this little child imparting this adult experience,” she told Dazed about the video at the time. “It's about the desperation of the avoidance of uncomfortable feelings. If you look back to any of my more poppy songs, most of the lyrics are about being fucked.” We can't wait to hear more about the singer in her own words.
