WATCH: Kendrick Lamar’s Six-Minute ‘We Cry Together’ Short Film
Kendrick Lamar has released the previously theater-exclusive short film that accompanies ‘We Cry Together’, his collaborative track with actress Taylour Paige from ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’, making it available to view online nearly two-and-a-half years after it was shot.
The film was directed by Lamar himself alongside Jake Schreier and Dave Free, with Adam Newport-Berra serving as its cinematographer. It sees Lamar and Paige (best known for her starring role in Zola) take the roles of a couple deeply immersed in an inflammatory argument, trading callous insults and personal attacks as they strut around their house, eventually losing track of their fight and having make-up sex on a couch.
The song itself notably eschews Lamar’s usual work by being framed solely around spoken-word slam poetry — as Billboard pointed out, those vocals were tracked live-in-camera for the film, which was shot in a single, continuous take on a soundstage.
Originally filmed in March of 2020, We Cry Together screened theatrically in June, with seven showings – one each day between Friday, June 3 and Thursday, June 9 – held at the Laemmle Royal Theater in West LA.
