As the director of W.E. can tell you, intolerance towards the genders, races, religions, and art house films of others is a real problem. So, now Madonna will take on the worldwide issue of persecution with her most devastating weapon: her films. Partnering with Vice Media and BitTorrent, the musician/Director will reportedly next week release a so-called "ambitious" 17-minute short under the title secretprojectrevolution.
As it's still a very secret revolution project, details of the exact premise aren't being revealed, but it's apparently meant to launch something called Art for Freedom, a submission-driven art campaign against persecution. In a statement, Madonna said:
"My goal is to show by the example of secretprojectrevolution my creative commitment to inspire change in the world through artistic expression. I hope my film and other submissions to Art For Freedom will be a call-to-action and give people a place to voice their own creative expression to help fight oppression, intolerance and complacency."
Secretprojectrevolution arrives as a BitTorrent "bundle" next Tuesday, available for free but with special features that can be unlocked by giving them your email address. The project clearly comes from a well-intentioned place, and Madonna reportedly said it's her hope "to start a 'revolution of love,'" so she hopefully won't spam you with stuff about her children's books.
