This is so good: This is America
Title of film: Childish Gambino, This is America
Director: Hiro Murai
Production Company: Doomsday Entertainment
Doomsday director Hiro Murai has always been the master of turning surrealism into reality and reality into a work of art – such as his music videos for writer / actor Donald Glover’s hip hop alter ego Childish Gambino.

Following their creative partnership on making the videos for the artist’s album, Because The Internet, Gambino was parked for some years while the duo brought their collaborative chemistry to the television series Atlanta, written and starring Glover with Murai as the lead director.

Series 1 is finally to be screened next Sunday on BBC2 in the UK (see here) and promises to be as funny, weird and wonderful as their videos.

Now Childish Gambino is back with this Murai masterpiece on modern America where ‘guns are treated more delicately than human lives’.
