BBC Three and Ben Zand conjoin creative forces on new Kanye-focused documentary, ‘Searching for Kanye West’
BBC Three and journalist Ben Zand train their focus on Kanye West, to render the ye album-maker the narrative subject of a new documentary, Searching for Kanye West. The 37-minute visual seeks to present viewers with a “fresh and revealing portrait of one of the most controversial and influential artists of the 21st century, at a pivotal point in the life of ‘Ye.'” The documentary courts politics and mental health as two of its central topics. GLC, Tony Williams, and other figures contribute interviews to Searching for Kanye West, which allows for a variation of voice as BBC Three and Zand chronicle some of the rapper’s recent activity in social and musical circles.
Zand is memorable for his previous work on the R. Kelly-centered documentary, R. Kelly: Sex, Girls, And Videotape. Searching for Kanye West is now available in full to occupy Kanye fans as they patiently await the impending arrival of Yandhi.
