Janelle Monáe 'Dirty Computer: An Emotion Picture' by Andrew Donoho & Chuck Lightning

Promonews - 30th Apr 2018

Janelle Monáe's, Dirty Computer, directed by Andrew Donoho and Chuck Lightning, is an Emotion Picture* that ties Monáe’s recent music videos into one cohesive whole, which includes Andrew's direction on the stunning clip for Django Jane.

Welcome to the world of Dirty Computer, where marginalized people fight to exist in a world that wants to rid them of their “dirt” and all the things that make them special. The movie finds Monáe portraying Jane 57821, living in in a totalitarian future where people are known as "computers."

*Emotion film definition: a narrative film and accompanying musical album
