It is being screened out of competition in Cannes
and it will star
Lebanese actress Razane Jammal
and Palestinian actor Ali Suliman
Yeezy is listed as the producer, writer and director.
Cruel Summer is based on a screenplay by Elon Rutberg,
who was the associate director of the
Throne's "N----s in Paris" video - below:
The co-director is Alexandre Moors,
who worked with Ye on Runaway (below) as well at N----s in Paris
so that may give us a vague 1 screen idea of what
the film will look like.
Also take a look at Kanye West's
Lost in the World which features
Justin Vernon of Bon Iver and is taken from West's
fifth album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Directed by SHOW Studio's Ruth Hogben.
As it says on YouTube
'Hogben's piece breaks the mould
of popular rap aesthetics while still celebrating
the extraordinary talent that has made West a modern icon.'
