Shabazz Palaces. Belhaven Meridian

Shabazz Palaces, Belhaven Meridian. Director: KAHLIL JOSEPH. Photography: MATTHEW J.LLOYD

Produced by WHAT MATTERS MOST for SHABAZZ PALACES, this short film/music video for the track “Belhaven Meridian” has been beautifully shot on 35mm black & white film in Watts, Los Angeles and is a one-shot homage to CHARLES BURNETT’s 1977 classic KILLER OF SHEEP (a classic African-American film which examines the black Los Angeles ghetto of Watts in the mid-1970s through the eyes of Stan).

Love it. The upside down really gets to you and I’m really digging the fonts!
