A Very Short Film About Erykah Badu's Very Short "Funeral Procession" Down Main Street



When we joined, which is to say "stumbled," into Erykah Badu and the Rebirth Brass Band's 407-foot-long drive-n-dance down Main Street a few weeks ago, we noted the many cameras on hand to film the brief trek; word was, per Badu's business partner Paul Levatino, they were there for a doc-in-progress about Tim Headington's ever-expanding efforts to remake Main in his image. So, then: Not sure if this freshly posted short-short, which is short some Rebirth Brass Band funk and uses instead as its soundtrack "The Healer" off 2008's New Amerykah Part One: 4th World War, is an excerpt from that or something else. But whatever it is, it's nicely done.
