Kendrick Lamar is bringing his critically-acclaimed good kid, m.A.A.d city LP to film. The Compton rapper and award-winning director Kahlil Joseph will debut m.A.A.d, a 14-minute short-film based on Lamar’s platinum-selling 2012 album, at the first-annual Sundance NEXT Fest. The mini-film festival, which showcases fresh new upcoming directors and rising artists, will take place in Los Angeles next month.


m.A.A.d stars a fresh-faced cast plucked from L.A. corners, and is described as “a kaleidoscope of storylines and ideas that defy typical categorization to explore new languages and new forms.” Kendrick and Joseph will be on site for a panel discussion, followed by a screening of Sundance winner Imperial Dreams and a performance from Tinashe.”

Tickets can be purchased here, while you can check out the event flyer below.
