YUNG LEAN: IN MY HEAD
Tribeca 2020 (unscreened)
A portrait of the SoundCloud rapper.
Swedish teenager Jonatan Leandoer Håstad found inexplicable fame online, sharing his music on SoundCloud under the alias Yung Lean. Filmmaker Henrik Burman recounts Jonatan’s unusual emergence at the age of 15, and the darker side of fame for him and his Sad Boys crew. While boasting impressive access to his subject, the director constructs a fairly by the numbers surface portrait that will register chiefly with the artist’s fanbase and leave all others scratching their heads at what all the fuss is about.
