Directed by Austin PetersGive Me Future tells the story of the global superstars’ March 2016 concert, the first performance from a major American artist in the country since diplomatic ties with the U.S. were restored. The culmination of 18 months of planning, the seminal event was the result of an idea to extend the Caribbean roots of Major Lazer to Cuba. The film, which premiered at Sundance Film Festival, follows the group as they venture into Havana to meet with young artists in the community and evolves into a portrait of youth culture in a country on the precipice of major change.

 

Says Diplo of the film: “Major Lazer’s time in Havana was one of the most important and moving experiences of our lives. The people we met and spoke to, the things we saw and the show we played had a profound impact on us, and Austin captured it perfectly. It feels even more impactful to share this with the world in light of current events, and we’re stoked for you to see it.”

 

Major Lazer is the globetrotting dancehall-inspired project of global superstars Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire. Their most recent release, a surprise EP entitled KNOW NO BETTER, topped charts worldwide and features contributions from QuavoTravis ScottCamila CabelloJ BalvinSean PaulAnittaMachel Montano and many more.
