The hype is heating up as Human Lost, a concept based on Osamu Dazai’s literary masterpiece No Longer Human, heads toward its October 22 & 23 release!
As part of the film’s promotion, Colombian recording artist J. Balvin (“Mi Gente”) teamed up with the incredible hip hop trio m-flo for a song and music video that not only speaks to the content of the sci-fi film, but succeeds as a banger of a theme song.
The music video, released this week, looks to exist within the world of Human Lost, matching the animation style and setting of the upcoming film. J. Balvin and m-flo members Verbal, Taku Takahashi and Lisa are all thoughtfully recreated in this world via top notch 3D CG and appear throughout the video performing the song.
Their animated performances are threaded with scenes from Human Lost, which continues to look breathtaking thanks to the work of director Fuminori Kizaki and character designer Yusuke Kozaki.
Osamu Dazai’s masterpiece of Japanese literature is re-imagined in this hyper-kinetic deep dive into human consciousness. In select US theaters Oct. 22 (sub) & Oct. 23 (dub) and Canadian cinemas Nov. 6 (sub) and Nov. 9 (dub).
