(AllHipHop News) A short film starring “Uncle” Luke Campbell will hit the screen during this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
The Sundance Institute has selected “The Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke” to be screened as part of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival’s Short Film Program.
“The Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke” is a bit of a departure from Luke’s real life, which was just as outlandish as the short film.
“The Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke” is based on the 1962 French film “La Jetée” and recounts Campbell’s rise to fame as he changes the face of Hip-Hop and fights for First Amendment rights.
In the film, the rapper becomes Mayor of Miami and guides the city into an era of peace and prosperity.
But a nuclear meltdown leaves Miami a radioactive wasteland, filled with mutants and Campbell is the only survivor left unscathed.
“It’s an honor to have a highly respected organization such as the Sundance Film Institute recognize me and my life as an important part of American culture by adding “The Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke” to their 2012 line up.”
“The Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke” was produced by the Borscht Corp., while Miami multi-media artist Jillian Mayer served as the director.
Lucas Leyva wrote the screenplay, while Evan Rosenfeld of Rakontour (“Cocaine Cowboys” “Hustling With the Godmother”) served as executive producer.
“This film lets the industry, and the world, know that we have creative talent in Miami that rivals any other city in the world,” added Luther Campbell.
