Flying Lotus on his gross-out movie debut, Kuso: 'You’ve never seen black characters like this – ever!’

The LA producer and musician discusses his first feature film, an unholy mashup of stoner comedy, body horror and incest. But will it simply prove too disturbing for audiences?

A woman tries to find her baby down a portal to a hellscape and has her legs conjoined with another woman for a sitcom called Sock, before being consumed by a ravenous turd. A murderous multicoloured yeti with an HD screen for a face, voiced by the American comedian Hannibal Buress, aborts a foetus, which is then used as a marijuana pipe. A crustacean cures a man’s fear of breasts from within George Clinton’s rectum.

These are just some of the scenes in Kuso, the debut feature film by Steven Ellison, who as Flying Lotus has become one of the most popular and psychedelic voices in electronic music, attracting the likes of Thom Yorke, Kendrick Lamar and Erykah Badu to sing over his tracks. But that psychedelia has taken an apocalyptic, scatological turn in Kuso, a series of vignettes set in a Los Angeles ravaged by disease after an earthquake.
