That B.E.A.T. from Abteen Bagheri on Vimeo.
With the recent controversy surrounding Beyonce’s “Formation” video, it is only right that we give props where props are due.
According to the story “Formation” utilized some scenes from “That B.E.A.T” that weren’t approved. After a mild Twitter frenzy, I think it was all worked out.
Must give much love to the beautiful NOLA footage shot and directed by @abteen and @lkeber to make #FORMATION whole.
