Video: Kanye West - "Cruel Winter" [Short Film Trailer]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.still from Kanye West x DONDA's short film "Cruel Winter"

Um. Whut? Kanye West and director Austin Christianson just leaked this mysterious clip of wintery landscapes entitled "Cruel Winter"--apparently a trailer for a short film of that name. Cruel Winter is of course also the name of the follow up to Cruel Summer, ie the forthcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation that Q-Tip swears he will be on. But Def Jam records has already denied that this is a trailer (or even a trailer for a trailer) for that album release. Even more perplexing than that is the visuals themselves; a sere vision of leafless trees, juxtaposed with President George Bush 41's famously sh*t-disturbing speech about a New World Order. Can somebody 'splain me what is going on here? Other than mad fnords. If you have insights, please watch below and exfoliate in the comments section:
