FKA twigs, Sad Day

Hiro Murai

Doomsday / FRIEND

Sad day is a short musical film for FKA twigs' album MAGDALENE. The film occupies an elastic space between narrative filmmaking and performance art, and much like the album for which it is grown from, the overall experience is exploratory above all else.
