Esteban Uyarra: War Feels Like War
In 2003, filmmaker Esteban Uyarra spent three months in Iraq with a borrowed handheld.

Jamie Lidell: “Believe In Me” Remix Pack
Jamie Lidell’s work spans kinetic funk and deconstructed R&B; an always electric and often raw sonic trip. In March, Lidell released “Believe In Me”, his second new track since 2013’s self-titled LP. “It’s an honest admission of self-doubt,” said Lidell. “I even feel vulnerable releasing this song, which is why I know it’s important.” Aching and atmospheric, “Believe In Me” is one of the artist’s most personal works. It also belongs to fans. Grab the Bundle to unlock and remix the new track.
