LIFE AND FREAKY TIMES OF UNCLE LUKE (2012)
A modern Miami adaptation of the 1962 French short film 'La Jetee', the film recounts Luke's (Uncle Luke, legendary rapper from the hip-hop group 2 Live Crew) rise to fame as he changes the face of hip-hop and fights for first amendment rights- and later as he ushers Miami into a golden era of peace and prosperity as Mayor. Everything changes when the Turkey Point Nuclear Reactor has a meltdown and turns Miami into a post-apocayptic wasteland.
Jillian Mayer and Lucas Leyva, (collectively Mayer\Leyva) teamed up with Rakontur and Uncle Luke to create this film for Borscht 7 as part of our filmmaker + musician collaboration series.
Premiere: Sundance Film Festival, 2012
