Madonna's long-teased #secretprojectrevolution video thing finally debuted last night (you can see it at the bottom of this post) and already the world's most cretinous dictators are holding up their hands and saying "THAT'S IT — IT'S ALL OVER FOR US".
The general idea behind the Steven Klein-directed, 17-minute film is that people will watch it and be inspired to do artistic things which will in turn make the world a better place vis-a-vis freedom of expression:
"Freedom of speech. Freedom of choice. Freedom of experience. We live in a world where basic rights are under attack. Madonna and Steven Klein’s new film is a hard lens on the dystopian now; a call to join the Revolution of love."
The film, which notes that there is "too much creativity being crushed beneath the wheel of corporate branding and what's trending", is downloadable via BitTorrent® and would-be contributors should use the #artforfreedom tag.
Madonna's also teamed up with Vice to make sure the whole thing runs smoothly in terms of 'content aggregation'.
The BitTorrent download is here but the film is also on Madonna's YouTube channel if that's easier for you. It starts off with Madonna in a prison but if you're hoping for Beyoncé to turn up and let her out you're in for a long wait.
There's also an interesting interview with Eddy Moretti from Vice, which you can watch here:
We think the interview is better than the actual 'short film' to be honest but that's art for you isn't it, and they're both quite interesting in their own respective ways.
