Screenings for the new posthumous documentary about XXXTentacion have been announced.
Look At Me: XXXTentacion was originally released on the streaming service Hulu in the US in May, and now it will be touring around North America. The film was made with the assistance of X’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, and the manager of his estate, Solomon Sobande.
The press release for the film reads: “IN HIS OWN WORDS: XXXTENTACION explores themes of his art and music, the fame, his fans, his views on human evolution, his track record with violence and his time spent in jail. The interview is interpolated with intimate moments between Onfroy and his mother Cleopatra Bernard, his manager Solomon Sobande and more, an intriguing inside-look into the mind of the Broward County, Florida rapper and his complicated, divisive life.
“Told from his own perspective, IN HIS OWN WORDS: XXXTENTACION offers a portrayal of an artist whose acts of violence, raw musical talent and open struggles with mental health continue to leave an indelible mark on his generation after his death at the age of 20.”
Meanwhile, Rob Stone, co-founder of distributor The FADER and FADER Films, said: “Cleopatra, Solomon and I watched the Fader-Jahseh one-on-one interview from 2017. It was emotional, chilling, insightful and tragic on a multitude of levels. It instantaneously brought us closer together. It feels only right to share it with his fans and the world, Jahseh in his own words.” – Rob Stone, Co-Founder of The FADER and FADER Films.
As well as screenings across America, Look At Me will also be released internationally on November 22nd via Altavod. Watch the trailer for the film below.
