The NFT, titled “Why are we taught to fear the witches?” depicts the film’s star Alice Krige in a short video that draws on the folk-horror aesthetic of the film.
Charlotte Colbert, director of the movie “She Will” is launching a new NFT
Krige plays former film star Veronica Ghent, who visits a healing retreat in Scotland to recover from a double mastectomy in the psychological horror film. While there, she is haunted by visions of witches who were burned on the site centuries ago and gained the ability to exact revenge for past traumas through her dreams.
Colbert’s NFT debuts as part of Goddess, an NFT exhibition co-curated by online gallery Eye of the Huntress and NFT marketplace SuperRare.
The exhibition features the work of nine female artists worldwide, including Meta Angels creator Aslan Ruby, Eyes of Fashion creator Talia Zoref, and artists Varvara Alay, Lizzy Aroloye, Dayoung Kim, Misha Milovanovich, Laura Shepherd, and Kate Daudy.
According to a November 2021 report by ArtTactic, women made up only 16% of primary and secondary sales on the NFT marketplace Nifty Gateway over the preceding 21 months.
Film and NFTs
Colbert is following in the footsteps of several other filmmakers who have made inroads into the NFT space. Spike Lee, Kevin Smith, and Quentin Tarantino have all launched NFT projects in the last year.
Meanwhile, independent filmmakers have taken advantage of NFT sales to fund projects.
This week, the indie film Calladita went into production; the film was funded by NFT sales, including a novel collaboration with NFT collection Nouns.
