Kanye West debuts film starring Kid Cudi at Cannes
Kanye West debuted his new short film, Cruel Summer starring Kid Cudi, at the Cannes Film Festival this week.
The film was shown across seven screens that switched on and off, showing various angles of each shot.
West said in a speech at the festival, "It related to a post-Steve Jobs, post-Windows era, where we're always on our BlackBerry in a ball game or at the movies. I'm not the best director in the world, but I had an idea that I thought would be amazing to inspire people, like a dream of one day this being the way people watch movies."
This is the film that West was working on in the Middle East. It was shot in Qatar and West said that before releasing it to the general public, he will need to "go bring it to New York, to Qatar, and re-edit it."
