Here's Kahlil Joseph's follow-up work to his Sundance 2013 Special Jury Award-winning short film Until The Quiet Comes, which we featured on S&A last fall.


This lyrical piece of art film is titled Wildcat, which explores the "little-known African-American rodeo subculture," in Grayson, Oklahoma. 

According to Joseph:

Black people are light years more advanced than the ideas and images that circulate would have you believe. The spaces we control and exist are my ground zero for filming, at least so far, and there are opportunities for me to tap into the energy. So an all-black town with an all-black rodeo in the American heartland was a kind of vortex or portal through which I could actually show this.

Flying Lotus scored Wildcat; the duo worked together on Until The Quiet Comes as well.

    I have got mad love for all the black filmmakers out there who are starting to push the boundaries of filmmaking.

    But this Kahlil Joseph, this guy is something different. Link him up with Bradford Young and some of our amazing up and coming black actors and I am scared to see what brilliance he produces.

    I haven't been so captured by something in a long time. So gorgeous.

    Dope. Original. Passionate. Ethereal.

    I see the filmmaker is a Terrence Malik fan. I like the way it was shot, but I fell asleep on it. Sorry. :(

    Wow...this film is mesmerizing!..it conjure up surreal images, something on the lines of what director(s) Charles Burnett/Terrence Malik and/or writer(s) Ishmael Reed/Toni Morrison might do...
