Kate Nash and Rebekka Johnson go wild.
Kate Nash and Rebekka Johnson (both recent standouts on the excellent Netflix series GLOW) have co-created Wild Bitch, an absurdist thriller making its SXSW debut later this weekend.
Wild Bitch is the intense and hilarious new short film born out of a collaboration between the former co-stars. In addition to writing, directing and starring in this quirky thriller together, UK pop icon Kate Nash has also composed the music for the project.
The film will premiere as part of SXSW’s Midnight Shorts Competition (available to screen both in person and virtually), on March 13th. Wild Bitch explores the connection between the destruction of nature and the oppression of women and the unique ways both will defend themselves when pushed to the brink.
In their interview with Dread Central, Nash and Johnson unpack their love of the horror genre, and how the Wendy Carlos score for The Shining helped to inspire Wild Bitch.
