Originally premiering at Sundance Film Festival this year, Eminem and Oculus reveal their first trailer for Marshall From Detroit, a virtual reality short film about the rapper’s upbringing and career. Eminem, alongside DJ Sway Calloway, travel around the streets of Detroit as the rapper reminisces about his connection to the city and his early stages at being a performer.
“In Marshall From Detroit, we sought to explore the city impressionistically: Detroit as a memory, a feeling, a dream,” said the film’s director Caleb Slain in a press release. “With a front row seat down memory lane alongside Marshall and Sway, this lyrical experience offers an unprecedented glimpse into its eponymous titans. We all have a home. And the extent to which it shaped us is one of life’s great mysteries. But as any native would tell you, Detroit, Michigan is one hell of a place to call home.”
Check out the trailer above, then check out Marshall From Detroit in full for free on Oculus Rift, Oculus Go, Samsung Gear VR, and other virtual reality devices.
