FKA twigs - 'sad day'

FKA twigs - 'sad day'

Directed by Hiro Murai and starring FKA twigs and Teake, "sad day" is a short musical film that occupies an elastic space between narrative filmmaking and performance art. Much like the album MAGDALENE from which it is born, the overall experience is exploratory above all else.
