Winner of both the Grand Jury Prize for dramatic feature and the Audience Award for U.S. dramatic film at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, director Ryan Coogler's FRUITVALE STATION follows the true story of Oscar Grant (Michael B. Jordan), a 22-year-old Bay Area resident who wakes up on the morning of December 31, 2008 and feels something in the air. Not sure what it is, he takes it as a sign to get a head start on his resolutions: being a better son to his mother (Octavia Spencer), whose birthday falls on New Year's Eve, being a better partner to his girlfriend Sophina (Melonie Diaz), who he hasn't been completely honest with as of late, and being a better father to Tatiana (Ariana Neal), their beautiful four year-old daughter. Crossing paths with friends, family, and strangers, Oscar starts out well, but as the day goes on, he realizes that change is not going to come easily. His resolve takes a tragic turn, however, when BART officers shoot him in cold blood at the Fruitvale subway stop on New Year's Day. Oscar's life and tragic death would shake the Bay Area -- and the entire nation -- to its very core.

There’s usually some behind-the-scenes footage that accompanies an artist’s magazine cover story. For Bruno Mars‘ first Rolling Stone cover, the creative director and artist decided to forego the usual chatter about hair, makeup, clothes and music in favor of a short (like 35 seconds) silent film inspired by the Andy Warhol Screen Tests from the 1960s.
The footage was shot on 16mm and Super 8, so it’s grainy and looks like an Instagram setting come to life. You can’t hear. You can only see and hopefully, you can cull some sort of information from Mars’ body language, movement and eyes. Use the context clues, peeps.
The clips definitely presents itself like it is from another era.
