Watch Disturbing, NSFW Flying Lotus-Scored Short Film

Eddie Alcazar's nightmarish 'FUCKKKYOUUU' currently screening at Sundance Film Festival

Eddie Alcazar's nightmarish short film 'FUCKKKYOUUU' features a minimalist Flying Lotus score

FUCKKKYOUUU, a disturbing short film scored by Flying Lotus and directed by Eddie Alcazar, is available to stream online. The eight-minute (and extremely NSFW) project veers from soft surrealism to existential horror, following a time-traveling woman through scenarios both dreamlike and nightmarish. 

"With the ability to travel in time, a lonely girl finds love and comfort by connecting with her past self," reads the film's description. "Eventually faced with rejection, she struggles with her identity and gender, and as time folds onto itself only one of them can remain."   

FUCKKKYOUUU, currently screening at the Sundance Film Festival, opens with selections from Sylvia Plath's 1962 poem "Elm," which taps into the film's brooding themes and reinforces the tree imagery throughout. Flying Lotus' minimalist score – airy electronic pings, choral washes, brash bursts of noise – is the perfect accompaniment for Alcazar's eerie images.

Flying Lotus' fifth LP — 2014's jazz-fusion-tinged electronic odyssey You're Dead! — topped Rolling Stone's list of that year's 20 Best EDM, Electronic and Dance Albums, also ranking Number 11 on our 50 Best Albums of 2014 list. That LP's "Never Catch Me" (featuring Kendrick Lamar) is nominated for Best Dance Recording at the 2016 Grammy Awards

Last year, FlyLo joined forces with longtime collaborator Thundercat and experimental hip-hop duo Shabazz Palaces on a new project, WOKE, recruiting funk legend George Clinton for their mind-altering track "The Lavishments of Light Looking."
