Pete Townshend has contributed steel guitar and violin to the soundtrack for the new Jude Law movie, titled The Hat. Townshend’s wife Rachel Fuller composed the score with Martin Batchelar to the film — which also stars Jude’s 23-year-old son, Raff Law, who served as the film’s executive producer. The movie, which was shot entirety during the pandemic, was directed by Teen Cancer America board member and supporter Darren Strowger.
According to TheWho.com: “What makes this film unique is that it was shot in lock-down during Covid-19 and is a new financial model of filmmaking where all proceeds go to charity — Teenage Cancer Trust and Teen Cancer America.”
The Hat has been nominated for Best UK Short at the prestigious London Raindance Film Festival 2020.
