Last winter, Kendrick Lamar revealed plans for a short film based around his major label debut, good kid, m.A.A.d city. Now, full details of the project have been announced, according to FADER. Entitled m.A.A.d, the 14-minute short will premiere at Sundance’s first annual NEXT Fest in Los Angeles on August 9th.
The film is described as a “a kaleidoscope of storylines and ideas that defy typical categorization to explore new languages and new forms.” It features a “fresh-faced cast plucked from L.A. corners.”
Kendrick served as the film’s director alongside Kahlil Joseph, who you may know from his work on Flying Lotus’ own short film, Until the Quiet Comes. Both Kendrick and Joseph will be on hand for the film’s premiere and will participate in a panel discussion.
