Little Simz Shares New Short Film ‘I Love You, I Hate You’

    Little Simz has premiered an original narrative short film, I Love You, I Hate You, which is out today in partnership with WePresent. The rapper stars in the 20-minute film, which was directed by Sam Pilling and written by Caroline Adeyemi based on a story by Simz. Her co-stars include C.J. Beckford, Shaniqua Okwok, and newcomer Sonia Ajuwa. Watch it below.

    I Love You, I Hate You is the story of abandonment,” Simz said in a statement about the film. “How trauma can affect us in our adult lives if never confronted. I wanted to make this film because I feel it’s a universal story that many people can relate to. It’s been incredible to work with a partner like WePresent (the digital arts platform of WeTransfer) who are so invested in telling stories like this. They understood and trusted my vision from the jump and had my back to create the film I set out to make.”

    Little Simz’s latest album, Sometimes I Might Be Introvert, arrived in September. Last month, she shared a Jeremy Ngatho Cole-directed video for the album track ‘I Love You, I Hate You’.
