With a successful debut at Sundance Film Festival at Cannes last year, Kristen Stewart has joined the ranks of ambitious women who have gon from in front of the camera to the director’s chair. Yesterday, November 9, her gorgeous and haunting short film, “Come Swim” officially premiered in Los Angeles at the Landmark Theatre on Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017.
The short film is described as “a surrealistic journey through one man’s imagination. Alternating between abstract, artistic representations, and alarmingly realistic scenes, the film takes audiences through the journey of one man’s day coping with anxiety and heartbreak.”
Developed as part of Refinery 29’s Shatterbox Anthology series, a collection of short films all made by women, Stewart’s directorial debut was produced by Scott Free Productions’ EVP Michael Pruss and Starlight Studio’s David Shapiro.
