Kanye West to Debut Cruel Summer at Cannes

Will play across seven screens simultaneously.

Kanye West will debut his latest short film, Cruel Summer, at Cannes this week. Shot on location in the Middle East, the film is inspired by the G.O.O.D Music album of the same title set for release this US summer. Based on a screenplay by Elon Rutberg (who was the associate director of the 'Niggas In Paris' video), the plot has remained something of a mystery. Created under the umbrella of his design company DONDA, the film was be played across seven screens, because one screen simply isn't enough. He tweeted this picture earlier in the year:

Kanye is credited as the producer, writer and co-director of Cruel Summer, with the film starring musician/actor Kid Cudi, comedian Aziz Ansari, Lebanese actress Razane Jammal and Palestinian actor Ali Suliman. Alexande Moors, who worked on the videos for 'Runaway' and 'Paris', co-directs alongside Kanye.

Cruel Summer will premiere worldwide at Cannes on 23 May and will be open to the ticket-buying public for a whole two days afterwards.
