Madonna, VICE, and BitTorrent have unveiled secretprojectrevolution, the 17-minute short film Madonna has been teasing online for months. The multihyphenate, who most recently helmed 2011’s W.E., co-directed the short with Steven Klein for the Art for Freedom project which launches September 24 at 2 PM ET. That’s when secretprojectrevolution will be made available for free as a BitTorrent Bundle. The download will include stills from the film, three HD film trailers, and with an email gate an exclusive HD 2K interview with Madonna by VICE’s CCO Eddy Moretti along with a handwritten note from Madonna. The Art for Freedom initiative is a public art project that encourages participants to submit video, music, poetry, and photography expressing the meaning of freedom and revolution. Said Madonna: “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.” The BitTorrent Bundle gives content creators access to BitTorrent’s 170M users and is in its Alpha stage, with access to open further to approved creators opening wider on September 24.
