This sounds interesting. According to a new press release that Death Grips sent out to, quote, "exclusively to 10 smaller websites," they've just finished soundtracking a new short film directed by drummer Zach Hill titled Misoneism, which will "shed light" on underground prostitution in Brazil, and star Robert Pattinson and Colin Hanks.
From the press release:
Not only that, but Zach Hill is currently wrapping up a short film he directed with an OST by DEATH GRIPS. The film is entitled Misoneism, is shot entirely in monochrome film, and follows the exploits of a young man forced into the underground prostitution business in Brazil. Starring Robert Pattinson and Colin Hanks, the film hopes to shed light on the matter in a shocking and abrasive way. The film is slated for a Spring 2014 release with a one time only screening at Sacramento’s historic Guild Theater. Further details on Misoneism will be released in the coming weeks through our Tumblr (now wiped clean and specifically dedicated to Misoneism.) A 2 minute trailer is to be released on the aforementioned link very soon.
They also added why the press release was only sent out to 10 smaller sites (our friends over at Pigeons & Planes included):
This message has been sent to exclusively 10 smaller websites to accentuate the minimal approach we are going to approach the promotion of Misoneism. The film was conceived with the ethos of Sacramento’s 70′s independent films, most of which were fairly low budget and gained, at best, modest popularity. In a sense, the promotion is a social experiment. We purposefully employed very high profile actors to star in an experimental, avant-garde film, promoted only on smaller indie music websites and publications for reasons that we will reveal in the upcoming press kit.
You can keep up with Misoneism on Death Grips' Tumblr, here.
