Kanye West to Debut ‘Cruel Summer’ at Cannes Film Festival

Kanye West

G.O.O.D. Music is headed to Cannes. Kanye West is set to debut a new film called Cruel Summer at this year’s festival.

The project, which is the brainchild of his design company DONDA, will open at the Cannes Film Festival on May 23.

The exhibit is said to be a combination of an art installation and a short film, which was inspired by the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation of the same name. It will include a 7Screen Experience, which Kanye first tweeted about in January.

The hip-hop superstar produced, wrote, and directed the film, which was shot in Qatar earlier this year. Kid Cudi and Aziz Ansari are among the stars. Vanessa Beecroft handled production design and Elon Rutberg wrote the screenplay.

In 2010, Kanye debuted his self-directed film Runaway co-starring Selita Ebanks. The 35-minute visuals were released in conjunction with his album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

Cruel Summer will remain open to the public for two days after its debut. Tickets are available on Kanye’s website.

The rapper is currently in London for the launch of the European leg of the “Watch the Throne” tour with Jay-Z.

    kanye west not just the best rapper or producer or entertainer etc, hes the best artist ever or can say the best man ever :P

    The difference here is that Kanye actually cares about how his music is presented… Most artist only care about money… They would never come out their own pocket to get an orchestra to play their shit over… Or makr a film to coincide with their album!


  11. TheDreamer

    WOW…Kanye is not only a great rapper and entertainer, he is creative when it comes to presenting his music.
