Flying Lotus:
The film 'Imperial Dreams', scored by Flying Lotus, will premiere at Sundance Film Festival

 

The soundtrack to 'Imperial Dreams' has been composed by Flying Lotus and will make it's worldwide premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival this month having originally been selected for the Sundance Screenwriters Lab in 2011.

Synopsis

"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.

Malik Vitthal’s radiant debut feature leavens hardcore gangster life with a warm and earnest humanity. Featuring a breakout performance by John Boyega as Bambi and an inspired rhythmic score by composer Flying Lotus, Imperial Dreams ignites a passion for redemption that transcends circumstance." - S.F.
