Hoping for another Kanye West interaction as he presents his debut short film Cruel Summer.
‘Reunited and it feels so gooooood’…Kanye West is back in Cannes. I like to think that it’s because of my gushing last year about his amazing performance at the Red Granite party (and his hugs and kisses for Team Screen that I have used as my best name-drop story for the past 12 months).
He’s here again this year to present his debut short “art film” Cruel Summer. He will unveil the short film/art installation ‘7 Screen experience’ at Palm Beach on Wednesday. After the world premiere, the installation will beopen to the public for two further days, and free tickets are available at www.cruelsummerfilm.com
Details are scant, but the project is inspired by his compilation album of the same name for G.O.O.D. Music. Also we know that the Doha Film Institute is involved and he shot part of it in the Middle East.
I’ll be there, lurking around for another Kanye hug, even if it means having to shove Kim Kardashian out of the way.
