Flying Lotus has shared the trailer for FUCKKKYOUUU, a short film directed by Eddie Alcazar, and featuring a score he wrote. The film debuted in August this year at the Sundance NEXT Fest, and if the trailer is anything to go by, we’re in for something pretty damn interesting.
This is far from Flying Lotus’ first time working with film. Earlier this year he revealed that he was writing a film, and more recently, his new collaborative project with bassist Thundercat and Shabazz Palaces, was inspired by a script he wrote in previous years.
According to the trailer description: “With the ability to travel in time, a lonely girl finds love and comfort by connecting with her past self. Eventually faced with rejection she struggles with her identity and gender, and as time folds onto itself only one of them can remain.”
The 29 second clip is very art house, very Dali-meets-Aphex Twin, it’s dark and weird as hell but wholly enticing. It’s not known when we’ll be able to see the film in it’s entirety, but for the meantime we have the trailer to keep us creeped out/excited.
Flying Lotus last visited Australia earlier this year to perform at St Jerom’es Laneway Festival. Laneway 2016 tickets are now on sale – details here.
