Shot on location for the Manchester International Festival, aired on BBC4, this film, directed by FKA Twigs, shows the work she created and filmed on one day during her week-long residency.

Conceptualized as an abstract autobiographical piece,

Soundtrack 7 includes performances set to the tracks How's That, Ultraviolet, and Good to Love, among others, and bound together by a striking repeated recitation of Thomas Wyatt's poem I Find No Peace (an excerpt from which opened Twigs's critically acclaimed LP1).

Emphasizing the grit and physicality of dance, Twigs describes this project as "flesh, sweat, feeling, muscle and a live movement. No air brushing, no frills."

Created with Richard Curtis and his company Project Everyone, this film was made for the 2016 U.N. conference in New York.

Using the film footage from the Women's hurdles final, at the1964 Olympics in Tokyo, the hurdles were used as a metaphor for the historical challenges woman have faced, and the continued striving towards gender equality.

Narrated by Emma Watson, the film found a good platform on Twitter.
