DashFUN follows the 38th edition of the Sundance Film Festival and was able to discover four new productions from American independent cinema, including the first excerpt from the documentary series devoted to Kanye West: Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy.
1. Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy
Considered a maker of beats, the biggest labels reject him, unconvinced by the demo of this man who displays a certain confidence in him, but according to them, should stay beatmaker. Thanks to exclusive and extraordinary archival images – the director of the documentary has followed Kanye West since his debut – we witness a man who struggles, who has a vision of himself that he cannot impose, which no matter how he goes about it.
This first episode is promising, although it does not yet address the Kanye West decried by some of his fans for his positions in favor of Donald Trump and focuses instead on this young artist steeped in ambition until at the signing of his first album produced among others by Jay-Z, The College Dropout, with the Roc-A-Fella label.
Jeen-yuhs: The Kanye West trilogy will be released soon on Netflix and what we can say is that the first episode is quite mouth watering.
The 38th Sundance American Independent Film Festival is currently taking place online until January 30. DashFUN participates in the event to share with you the most outstanding or expected films of this edition. Discover our selection of the day, made up of two fiction feature films and two documentaries, the first devoted to rapper Kanye West, and the second to Evan Rachel Wood and his accusations against the singer Marilyn Manson.
