Kate Nash goes from British-model-turn-wrestler in “GLOW” to pop-singing rebel in “Kate Nash: Underestimate the Girl,” a new film which will have its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival on Sept. 22.
“There’s moments when the universe really does swing you a certain way,” Nash says in the exclusive trailer, which you can watch above.
“This is a matter of life and death to me because making music keeps me alive,” she adds. “And being in the music industry has almost killed me. I’m not going to die for the sake of being a f–king pop star.”
Nash is an English musician and actress, whose debut album “Made of Bricks” and her hit song “Foundations” rocketed her to international fame.
In “Kate Nash: Underestimate the Girl,” a platinum-selling pop dissident turns her back on the music business and learns how to survive as a punk renegade, TV wrestling queen and DIY leader of an all-girl band. This high-energy, female-centered rock odyssey reveals the treacherous line that today’s artists must walk to survive while making art on their own terms in the modern digital economy.
“Kate Nash: Underestimate the Girl” is produced and directed by Amy Goldstein. Anouchka van Riel also produced.
