James Murphy Premieres First Short Film <i>Little Duck</i>

James Murphy has kept himself active with plenty of post-LCD Soundsystem projects over the past two years. He was a supporting actor in Tim Heidecker’s The Comedy, he remixed David Bowie’s The Next Day track “Love is Lost” and he even contributed extensively to Arcade Fire’s new album. Now Murphy has released his debut short film Little Duck through Yahoo! Screen.

The short film’s synopsis says “A young Man is pulled from his life in Manhattan back to his home in rural Japan when his estranged brother runs into trouble.” Murphy introduces the 16-minute film saying that his goal was “to prove that we are all creative and that anyone can sit in the director’s chair.” You can see Murphy’s film in its entirety above.
