Watch the Behind-the-Scenes Trailer for Kanye West’s ‘Jesus Is King’ Film
Like the film’s official trailer, this one also opens with scripture from Mark 1:15 before showing picturesque scenery of Arizona’s Painted Desert. It follows Kanye and his team setting up the camera outside the Roden Crater, artist James Turrell’s never-before-seen installation where much of the Nick Knight-directed Jesus Is King was filmed. We see Kanye’s choir rehearse while he watches and catch Ye in the editing suite.
In an inspirational voiceover, Kanye speaks about his vision. “We’re here to spread the gospel. I’m not here for your entertainment. We’re here to save souls. Here to save people from eternal damnation. I use art to make believers.”
