Over the last year, I have had the great fortune of working with an amazing team of directors on a film inspired by my album Heaven and Earth. We are so proud to announce that AS TOLD TO G/D THYSELF will premiere at Sundance in January! pic.twitter.com/9ktmHSAn7w— Kamasi Washington (@KamasiW) December 3, 2018
