After months of teases by Lana Del Rey, her epic short film, Tropico, is streaming in full exclusively across VEVO, the world's leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform.
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 her albums 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.'
The film, which also stars model Shaun Ross, was directed by Anthony Mandler who directed Del Rey's videos for 'National Anthem' and 'Ride.'
