Flying Lotus Directs Skinflick Tribute To Friend

Flying Lotus directed a tribute to his friend Bumpy Bob The Bubble Boy (Bob Heslip) for the   NOWNESS channel’s Define Beauty series. Skinflick is the third episode in the series and it presents Bob’s tumor-ridden body to the audience as a way to question common ideas about beauty. Flying Lotus provided the music for the episode and said this about Heslip:

“I first met Bob Heslip when working on my feature film KUSO –  I had him do a very small role for me and in the process of shooting I saw so much potential in him as an actor and a unique human being. He is a lovely man and I wanted to make a film that would honour the beauty of his unique condition”

Skinflick can be viewed on the NOWNESS channel and Flying Lotus is still on his 3D Live Tour.
