We’re Gonna Be Lords is the latest film from Watch The Throne director Robert Lopuski.
“There’s this almost transcendent quality of being nobody in pursuit of something great—the idea of becoming a Lord,” said Lopuski of his film. “It felt fragile but charged, raw, dream like, ritualistic.”
Interviews with the aforementioned MCs are punctuated by scripted, occult-like scenes. The film’s intro pays tribute to the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard.
According to Lopuski, the crew “basically shot a series of vignettes, almost like narrative fragments, with the intention that they could somehow create a level of alchemy between true docu material and these other ‘moments.'”
