Runaway Short Film

Over the weekend, Kanye West premiered his short film "Runaway" on MTV, MTV2 and BET. The 30-minute film, focuses on the ill-fated relationship between West and a phoenix that plummets from the cosmos (Selita Ebanks). Their union is torn apart after the otherworldly creature is discriminated against for her curious behavior and features. It features minimal dialogue and comprised of tracks from his forthcoming fifth LP, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, the film's subtexts include themes of social ostracism and rebirth — issues the MC has said he identifies with. Two words: pure genius.
