Conceptualized and co-directed by Buck, ‘Nobody Knows’ explores the internal thought process behind his struggles as a Black man and how he finds solace & power through dance and music. Watch ‘Nobody Knows’ HERE.
Produced in collaboration with Red Bull Dance, the five minute film is scored by Pastor T.L. Barret’s emblematic gospel song “Nobody Knows” and Lil Buck taps a choir to serve as the musical narrators of his most personal thoughts. Symbolic of his religious upbringing, the story is captured in a church and takes the viewer on a powerful journey. As told by Buck himself:
“As a black man, I am trying to find solace with the struggles and church being the last resort for seeking peace. You see me progress as I battle with that struggle, but as the music builds I dance through it, to be reborn and full of joy. Through the release of my brothers and sisters protesting and my dancing, I am transformed and freed from all my sadness. The choir represent my thought process and my internal strength supporting me to break through towards celebration.”
The Memphis-born movement artist has been known to transcend the dance scene, capturing the attention of the entertainment and art worlds for his ability to express through dance – merging Memphis Jookin’ and his street dancing skills with classical ballet training. His talent has been recognized and tapped into by the likes of Spike Jonze, Madonna, GAP, Janelle Monae, Spike Lee, Apple and many more.
