Imperial Dreams, a film scored by the LA-producer-musician Flying Lotus is making a run at a worldwide premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival this month. Flying Lotus will get props for being billed as "Composer" in the film's credits, and the movie was directed by Malik Vitthal.
The film’s synopsis reads in part "Malik Vitthal’s radiant debut feature leavens hardcore gangster life with a warm and earnest humanity. Featuring a breakout performance by John Boyega as Bambi and an inspired rhythmic score by composer Flying Lotus, Imperial Dreams ignites a passion for redemption that transcends circumstance."
FlyLo is of course no stranger to film making, his 2012 album Until The Quiet Comes had a short film made to go with it by Kahlil Joseph. Check it out below:
