The 14-minute short film was debuted last year at the Sundance NEXT Festival, & now K. Dot & director Kahlil Joseph are pushing to have the flick featured in the L.A. Museum of Contemporary Art. Fans can expect for m.A.A.d. to play at the museum March 21st up until July 27th.
The film revolves around Kendrick’s classic debut as well as Joseph’s idea of what life is like in the city of Los Angeles.
No information about tickets have been revealed to date, but check out the synopsis of the motion picture below:
Kahlil Joseph’s double-screen projection m.A.A.d is a lush portrait of contemporary Los Angeles. 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.
