Quien más para poner banda sonora a un proyecto cinematográfico que Flying Lotus, ya que dese hace años atrás a mostrado su interés por estos. En 2012 puso su conocimiento y experiencia al filme producido por Jay-Z “An Oversimplication of her Beauty” y poco después se encargó de dar forma al score para el cortometraje de su frecuente colaborador Kahlil Joseph, “Wildcat”.
“Imperial Dreams” es un largometraje dirigido por Malik Vitthal.
“Bambi wants to publish his credos and chronicles and start his career the way any other normal young writer would. For Bambi, however, normal is the quandary. “Normal” means returning to Watts, Los Angeles, after a 28-month jail stint to find his young son playing next to his strung-out grandmother. It’s normal for the patriarch of his family to offer Bambi pills, guns, and a drug-running job as a way to welcome him home. A normal visit from his cousin involves Bambi and son performing minor surgery to extract a bullet from his arm. Bambi meets this surreal, ghetto normal with equanimity, but he knows life can’t be “normal” like this for long”.
