Out of almost 8,000 submissions, a short film about Luther Campbell, better known as Uncle Luke of 2 Live Crew, has been selected by The Sundance Institute. Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke was one of 64 selections for the 2012 Sundance Film Festival's Short Film Program. Read a description of the film below, and watch the trailer above.
Freaky Times is a modern Miami adaptation of the 1962 French short film La Jetée, and recounts Campbell’s rise to fame as he changes the face of hip-hop and fights for First Amendment rights – and later as he ushers Miami into a golden era of peace and prosperity as mayor. Everything changes when a nuclear meltdown at Turkey Point turns Miami into a radioactive wasteland filled with mutants, and Campbell is the only survivor left unscathed.
