DIE ANTWOORD / HARMONY KORINE

Harmony Korine’s short film with Die Antwoord is scheduled to have it’s world premiere at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, on March 15. The film prior to production was going by the name Wat Kyk Jy but now has the title Umshini Wam.

According to details given on the SXSW website here, Umshini Wam is 16-minutes in length and cinematography is by Alexis Zabe, who is perhaps best known for the 2007 Carlos Reygadas film Silent Light. The plot is also given as follows:

Big dreams, big blunts, big rims, and big guns. It’s time to get gangsta gangsta. Ninja and Yo Landi are wheelchair-bound lovers and real gangstas. They live in the outskirts of civilization, they shoot guns for fun, smoke massive joints, and sleep in the woods. They don’t have any bling to show for their gangsta cred, but the world deserves to know who they are. They’re tramps, and their wheels are starting to fall off. Ninja become despondent over their vagabond existence, but Yo Landi won’t let him give up. What ensues is straight up gangsta mayhem, the realist of the real, true gangsta shit.
