Flying Lotus is at it again with the film scores. Having just worked on the music for the Jay-Z-produced film An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty, FlyLo has collaborated with filmmaker Kahlil Joseph to score his new short film "Wildcat."

This isn't the first time the two have teamed up. Last year Joseph directed a short film that featured songs from Flying Lotus's 2012 album Until the Quiet Comes.

"Wildcat" explores a little-known African-American rodeo subculture in Grayson, Oklahoma. Joseph, who has worked with other musicians including Shabazz Palaces and Seu Jorge, explained to NOWNESS of his film:

Black people are light years more advanced than the ideas and images that circulate would have you believe. The spaces we control and exist are my ground zero for filming, at least so far, and there are opportunities for me to tap into the energy.

The film is set to show during Sundance London this weekend.
