Skrillex & Wiwek's New Short Film Is An Absolute Must Watch

Posted at August 19th, 2016 | by Yash Vikram Singh | in

You know how apparently ‘All rappers act’? Well the days of rappers representing the music industry in show business are behind us. Skrillex & Wiwek just premiered their film ‘Still In The Cage’ at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles yesterday.

Wiwek referred to the film as “the biggest project I’ve ever participated in,” before adding, “awesome experience to see the visual part and the music part coming together as one creative melting pot.”

Director Jodeb further added: “As a director, I took a chance by making an ironic piece that doesn’t take itself too seriously, while still infusing it with drama and darkness. Keeping the balance of tone was a real tight rope experience during editing. All the artists involved in the project weren’t scared of challenging the viewers and their fans with all these paradoxical narrative voices, especially because we believe that under the skin of this piece of work, there is a positive message.”

The film is a sombre narrative that explores layers and tries to go deep within. It kicks off with a group of friends in Bangkok looking to escape reality. Wiwek’s ‘The Free And Rebellious’ EP which came out last February on Skrillex’s label OWSLA is the soundtrack of the movie. Check out the short film below.
