Ely Kim's Boombox

Ely Kim, an MFA student at Yale, might be the greatest human being who ever lived. My friend James is visiting from Chicago, and we started watching the video, thinking we’d quit after about ten dance sequences. We watched the whole thing. Then, when his girlfriend came over, we watched it again, just as transfixed as we were the first time around. This is a work of genius. As another friend notes, it’s clear that Kim has a keen visual sense — the shots are stunning, the locations clearly selected and dressed with attention and care. Also, the playlist is sick. Aminatou, a TAS reader, sent me this link. I am profoundly grateful.
