The FADER's long-awaited XXXTentacion documentary Look At Me! will have its world premiere at this year's SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, running from March 11-19. Look At Me! is directed by Sabaah Folayan and produced by FADER Films.
Below, read our synopsis for the film:
Look At Me! explores how Florida teenager Jahseh Onfroy became SoundCloud rapper XXXTentacion, one of the most streamed artists on the planet. Through frank commentary from family, friends and romantic partners, and unseen archival footage, director Sabaah Folayan offers a sensitive portrayal of an artist whose acts of violence, raw musical talent, and open struggles with mental health left an indelible mark on his generation before his death at the age of 20.
Prior to his shooting death in 2018, XXXTentacion had risen from the nascent SoundCloud rap scene to the heights of chart success with songs like "Look At Me!," "Jocelyn Flores," "fuck love," and "SAD!" His albums 17 and ? went double and triple platinum, respectively. The projects Skins and Bad Vibes Forever were released after his passing.
