Young Turks and Apple Music have released Process, a film about London-based rising star Sampha. The 37-minute film was produced by famed Pulse Films director Kahlil Joseph, the creative mind behind Beyonce’s Lemonade and several music videos for FKA Twigs and Kendrick Lamar. Process is a visual contextualization of Sampha’s most recent album of the same name. The film is currently available exclusively on Apple Music.
The short movie was produced in January 2017, and filmed between Freetown, Sierra Leone, and Morden, South London. Both these places have strong personal meaning for Sampha, with Freetown being the hometown of his parents and Morden the London suburb he grew up in after his parents moved to the U.K. The intense film shifts back and forth between the two very different cultures, all to the soundtrack of Sampha’s groundbreaking Process. As always, Joseph’s visuals are breathtaking and sweeping, making it hard to look away for even a minute. In a press release, Sampha spoke about the collaboration: “It’s been a genuine pleasure collaborating with Kahlil on this film. He has such a unique visual language and has found such a beautiful way to tell this story.”
