Having worked on short film FUCKKKYOUUU and 2012 dramedy An Over Simplification of Her Beauty, Flying Lotus is no stranger to scoring films. To the producer’s credit, his affinity for flickering beats and unconventional ambience seem well suited to creative visual pairings.
Airing at the Tribeca Film Festival later next week, LoveTrue is an arthouse documentary where non-actors play both younger and older versions of themselves in three love stories. The film is directed by Alma Har’el and executive producer Shia LaBeouf (perhaps on hiatus from his stint as viral motivational speaker). It’s not the first time that LaBeouf has worked with the director, having previously starred in her music video for Sigur Rós’ Fjögur Piano. While there are more than a few arresting visuals to be had, it’s clearly Lotus’ score which steals the show.
LoveTrue will be one of 72 short films aired during the festival, which lineup also includes David Bowie documentary David Bowie (Let’s Dance: Bowie Down Under).
If a new soundtrack isn’t enough, fans should also note that the producer informed MixMag in February of the likely prospect of a new album in 2016. Given how prolific he is, not to mention the return of Sealab 2021‘s captain Murphy, it looks like 2016 is shaping up to be an excellent year for Flying Lotus fans.
