Watch Sampha New Short Film, ‘Process’ With Emmy and Grammy Nominated Director
Trending recording artist Sampha, in partnership with Apple Music and Young Turks, presents the Kahlil Joseph-directed short film, ‘Process’.
In an exclusive deal with Apple, ‘Process’ is a film about the London musician, Sampha. 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, south London. Both places have deep personal significance for Sampha, Freetown being the hometown of Sampha’s parent’s (and the city where many of the Sisay family still reside), while Morden is the outer London suburb that Sampha grew up in after his parents relocated to the UK. Process’s vivid narrative intertwines footage and performance from both places to stunning effect.
Los Angeles filmmaker Kahlil Joseph is a Emmy and Grammy nominated director. He 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’).
Sampha has commented on the short film in the following statement:
“It’s been a genuine pleasure collaborating with Khalil on this film. He has such a unique visual language and has found such a beautiful way to tell this story.”
