Madonna’s secretprojectrevolution, a 17-minute film she co-directed with Steven Klein, will be unveiled on Sept. 24.
The film launches Art For Freedom, an online global initiative to further freedom of expression, created by Madonna, curated by youth media companyVICE, and distributed by web community BitTorrent.
“My goal is to show by the example of secretprojectrevolution my creative commitment to inspire change in the world through artistic expression. I hope my film and other submissions to Art For Freedom will be a call-to-action and give people a place to voice their own creative expression to help fight oppression, intolerance and complacency,” commented Madonna.
Art For Freedom is a global digital initiative, led by Madonna, designed to fuel free speech — to respond, address and protest persecution around the world. It is an online public art project encouraging the world to express their personal meaning of freedom and revolution, in the form of video, music, poetry, and photography.
Public submissions will become part of the Art For Freedom platform: contributors can join the project by uploading original artwork or tagging original posts #artforfreedom.
