Coming in at a runtime of 37 minutes, Searching for Kanye West gives viewers a “fresh and revealing portrait of one of the most controversial and influential artists of the 21st century, at a pivotal point in the life of ‘Ye’.” Throughout the documentary, Zand tries to get some insight into West’s recent antics, political controversies and his mental health. Speaking to those close to the artist in and around Chicago and DC, Zand explains why West is now “going all out to show he doesn’t care what people think.” The documentary includes interviews with GLC and Tony Williams among others.
Searching for Kanye West can be watched in its entirety above and over at BBC Three’s YouTube page.
Previously Zand worked on R. Kelly: Sex, Girls, And Videotape, a documentary which explored R. Kelly’s upbringing in Chicago as well as his numerous sexual abuse charges.
