1: Michael Kiwanuka – Interlude (Loving the People)

Phillip Youmans directed the video for Interlude (Loving The People), taken from Michael Kiwanuka’s 2019 album Kiwanuka.

“Listening to Interlude (Loving the People) feels like sunshine on my skin,” Youmans has said in a statement.

“This film is an escapist trip where young black people revel in the psychedelic experience. For me, ‘Loving the People’ is about the adrenaline of unconfined love and joy, a celebration of black youth and imagination.”
