After premiering at the Sundance Next Fest back in August, the visual to Kendrick Lamar’s debut album good kid, m.A.A.d city will be released for the public’s viewing pleasure. Unfortunately, only TDE stans that live in LA will get to see it.
The short documentary, titled m.A.A.d, will be shown at the Museum for Contemporary Art in LA in 2015 from Mar. 21st to Jul. 27th.
The 14-minute doc, which was directed by Khalil Joseph with help from Flying Lotus, is depicted as “a lush portrait of contemporary Los Angeles.”
Read the synopsis for the film below.
“From barbershops to marching bands, from homeboys drinking in the streets to the iconic carpet of shimmering lights, the camera in m.A.A.d sinuously glides through predominantly African American neighborhoods in Los Angeles catching a dizzying array of quotidian moments suffused with creativity, joy, and sadness. Joseph’s film is accompanied by a thick booming soundtrack provided by emerging hip-hop star Kendrick Lamar and indeed m.A.A.d is part of the title of Lamar’s highly acclaimed second album good kid, m.A.A.d. city.”
