Flying Lotus continues to push the boundaries of art from all angles, from music (You’re Dead!) to film KUSO. Now, the musician-producer teams up with NOWNESS to create the short film Define Beauty: Skinflick, which centers upon Bob Heslip — a man who suffers from neurofibromatosis type 1, a pretty severe (and fairly rare) skin condition. Flying Lotus explains:
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 honor the beauty of his unique condition.
