Kanye West Interview — REM Short Film
“It’s about motivating the do-ers.” ________
These are selected clips from an interview with Kanye West conducted by Tomas Koolhaas in October 2013 for his film ‘REM’ -a documentary about his father, the architect Rem Koolhaas. CONTEXT: In May 2012 OMA (Rem Koolhaas’s architecture partnership) designed a temporary pavillion for Kanye West at the Cannes film festival. The purpose of the pavilion was to screen a film purpose-made by Kanye West that was shot using seven cameras recording simultaneously from different angles. The pavilion housed seven separate screens, each one showing a separate camera angle. Despite the innovative nature of the film and the pavilion itself the entire endeavor received only a limited amount of coverage in the mainstream media.
