Lana Del Rey premieres her 30 minute film Tropico today across VEVO today.
Directed by Anthony Mandler and co-starring model Shaun Ross, Tropico is an epic tale based on the biblical story of sin and redemption and features Del Rey starring as Eve. The three-part story begins in the Garden of Eden and travels through time to modern-day Los Angeles. Del Rey’s visual sensibility is rich and fantastical, and the movie’s running themes stay true to the concepts of Born to Die and Born To Die – The Paradise Edition: the loss of innocence, good vs. evil, and trading beauty for money. The film puts closure on the two recordings, and features three songs from The Paradise Edition: “Body Electric,” “Gods and Monsters,” and “Bel Air.”
