Young Turks and Apple Music have released Kahlil Joseph’s (Pulse Films) film about one of London’s favourite sons, the inimitable Sampha.
Process premiered at London’s Institute of Contemporary Art, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Underground Museum and The Museum of Contemporary Art in L.A., and is now now available exclusively on Apple Music.
The 37 minute film is a rich, widescreen visual contextualisation of Sampha’s acclaimed 2017 debut album of the same name.
Process was filmed in January 2017 between Freetown, Sierra Leone and Morden in south London. Freetown is the hometown of Sampha’s parents (and the city where many of the Sisay family still reside), while Morden is the outer London suburb where Sampha grew up when his parents relocated to the UK.
Process is directed by the Los Angeles artist and filmmaker Kahlil Joseph. The Emmy and Grammy nominated director is famed for his work with some of the world’s most exciting and forward-thinking artists, including Beyonce (‘Lemonade’), Flying Lotus (‘Until The Quiet Comes’), FKA twigs (‘Video Girl’) and Kendrick Lamar (‘m.A.A.d’).
