This is the first in a trilogy of short films of Beyonce and Jay Z called “Bang Bang.” Part Two arrives on Tuesday as the couple’s On The Run Tour: Beyoncé and Jay Z HBO special premieres on September 20th.
An exhibition and screening will be also be held at Clic Gallery New York in NYC on September 19th.
“Two American outlaws speed through the Californian desert in a dusty 1960s Pontiac GTO with a manifest poise and stylish swagger that could only be embodied by the world’s foremost musical couple: Beyoncé and Jay Z. Directed by the New York-based filmmaker and photographer Dikayl Rimmasch, Bang Bang is a trilogy of short films starring Mr and Mrs Carter’s filmic alter egos, appearing throughout their two-and-a-half month long tour, On the Run, which celebrated its finale on Saturday at Stade de France in Paris. Rimmasch was introduced to Beyoncé and Jay Z via Mark Romanek, and with a creative cohort in the war photojournalist William Kaner put together a filmmaking approach and aesthetic inspired by French new wave cinema and the powerful intimacy of legendary independent director and mentor, Les Blank. Rimmasch’s stripped-back process paid dividends, allowing an incredibly fast, shoot-from-the-hip style using custom camera rigs that he had designed, 50-year-old Russian lenses and lighting effects by Archie Ciotti and Scott Spencer.”
I don’t know why but I find it slightly cringeworthy to watch…
Allegedly, during the last stop on their ‘On The Run’ tour Jay Z was performing, ‘Beach Is Better’ when the rapper decided to switch up the lyrics making the big announcement before the world, “Cause she pregnant with another one”.
How exciting if this is true…congratulations!!!
