Queen Madge Turns to Bittorrent for Arthouse Free Speech Film

By Gary Cutlack on at

Sexy pop pensioner Madonna is having a go at film directing again, only this time she's doing it for charity. Her "secretprojectrevolution" is a short co-directed film that'll launch for free on Bittorrent next week.

The film's release comes as part of the Art for Freedom project, which encourages artists across all forms of media to submit their thoughts on the subject of freedom of speech. Madonna said: "I hope my film and other submissions to Art For Freedom will be a call-to-action and give people a place to voice their own creative expression to help fight oppression, intolerance and complacency."

To show how she's in touch with the internet despite getting on a bit, she even did an AMA about it on Reddit and supplied the required photographic proof. The film launches on September 24th as a Bittorrent Bundle. [Billboard]
