Via Nowness comes Film 1, a short by Martin de Thurah for designer Johan Lindeberg. De Thurah is best known for his Fever Ray and James Blake music videos, and his latest stars Iva Gocheva, Bogdan Kwiatkowski and Kate Lyn Sheil. It’s shot by Kaspar Tuxen, one of Filmmaker‘s 2010 “25 New Faces.” From the site:

Today’s digital premiere of Martin de Thurah’s Film I spotlights Johan Lindeberg’s new BLK DNM line and takes cues from the designer’s personal life. “I went through a recent break-up and wanted to use my own dynamic to inspire the film,” Lindeberg says. “I am fascinated by the way in which fashion both provokes and reflects the human narratives around it.” The Swedish fashion designer looked to De Thurah, whose surreal music videos for the likes of Fever Ray and James Blake he cites as an ongoing source of inspiration, to channel the brand’s downtown conceit: “I wanted the film to embody all of the qualities that I love about New York—its depth and nerve, its capacity to be a bit anarchistic, yet still human and inspiring.”
