“Come Swim,” has already been shown to audiences at film festivals like Sundance and Cannes this year, but now it’s time for the world to discover what Kristen Stewart has come up with in her first time directing a narrative feature. The short film, produced by David Ethan Shapiro and scored by St. Vincent, is now streaming for free on Youtube.
Back at the New York Film Festival in 2016, Stewart told Indie Wire that this is the “most satisfying” project of her career. “As an actor, you’re like a little thing that can help everyone feel this, but when it comes from you — it’s like validation in the most ultimate,” she said of directing to Indie Wire.
The Cannes Film Festival described the film as: “a diptych of one man’s day; half Impressionist and half realist portraits.” For Stewart, she has said her film is subjected to the experience of heartbrokenness.
Kristen Stewart’s most recent work was with Olivier Assayas’ “Personal Shopper.” She has also been rumored to star in the reboot of “Charlies Angels” with Lupita Nyong’o.
Josh Kaye is the entire acting cast of the film, while Sydney Lopez provides voice-over.
