Kanye West Ogles Kim Kardashian At Cannes

14:32, Thursday, 24 may 2012

Kanye West and girlfriend Kim Kardashian hit the Cannes Film Festival last night (23rd May) for the premiere of his new flick Cruel Summer – where Yeezy was unable to take his eyes off Kimmy.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star wore a low-cut gold and white frock to the event, leaving West more interested in her cleavage than chatting to reporters about his film.

Cruel Summer, inspired by West’s upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation of the same name, was then projected onto seven screens inside a tented pyramid, designed to give viewers a fully immersive experience.

The 30-minute short stars G.O.O.D. artist Kid Cudi as a car thief who falls for a blind Arabian princess.

The seven screens alternately come on and off, sometimes showing different angles of one shot, other times acting as an extended wide screen, complete with a ceiling and floor.

This means the audience looks around them at the images, instead of staring straight ahead, which, as Kanye explained in a speech, was to reflect real life.

West explained: "it related to a post-Steve Jobs, post-Windows era, where we’re always on our BlackBerry in a ball game or at the movies.

"I was very particular about having the screens separate, where your mind puts the screens back together, the way you put memories together.

"I’m not the best director in the world, but I had an idea that I thought would be amazing to inspire people, like a dream of one day this being the way people watch movies.

"You know, [Quentin] Tarantino doing a movie like this or a horror movie like this, animation, 3-D … in this form that surrounds you."

He added: "People want to go back and see it more and more because they missed something to their left or to their right, and it feels more like the experience of life."

Although the world premiere of Cruel Summer coincided with the Cannes, it is not in competition or part of the official screenings. the film is now open to the public in Cannes until the 25th may.
