Here’s a short film called Clapping for the Wrong Reasons that was written by Donald Glover that plays like a a day in the life of Childish Gambino. Though the film is fiction, it feels almost like a documentary. The pacing is slow and deliberate (and at times meandering) like an art house film, but there are also moments of startling candor and seeming authenticity. The film also has appearances from Chance the Rapper, Flying Lotus, Trinidad James, Abella Anderson and more. If you’re looking for something off the beaten path, check this out.
