Earlier this year, Kendrick Lamar and director Kahlil Jospeh debuted their m.A.A.d. city short film, which was inspired by Kendrick's critically acclaimed album, good Kid, m.A.A.d. City, at the Sundance NEXT Fest in Los Angeles. Today, the duo announced that they're expanding the range of the project, revealing that the 14-minute film will be shown at the L.A. Museum of Contemporary Art in 2015 from March 21 through July 27.

Ticket and other additional information haven't been announced yet, but this will now give fans who missed the one and only screening earlier this year a chance to see the highly-praised short film. Kendrick is currently working on his upcoming album, which he has yet to reveal an official date or title for, but is expected in the coming months. The synopsis for the short film can be read below.

Kahlil Joseph’s double-screen projection m.A.A.d is a lush portrait of contemporary Los Angeles. From barbershops to marching bands, from homeboys drinking in the streets to the iconic carpet of shimmering lights, the camera in m.A.A.d sinuously glides through predominantly African American neighborhoods in Los Angeles catching a dizzying array of quotidian moments suffused with creativity, joy, and sadness. Joseph’s film is accompanied by a thick booming soundtrack provided by emerging hip-hop star Kendrick Lamar and indeed m.A.A.d is part of the title of Lamar’s highly acclaimed second album Good Kid m.A.A.d. City.
