CGiii Comment

Janelle Monae’s Dirty Computer visual album. Set in a dystopian nightmare, Jane 57821 (Monae) is subjected to having her memories removed or “cleaned,” ones that mainly involve her relationship with Zen (Tessa Thompson). As the removal of her thoughts and feelings occurs, we’re taken on a journey to find out who Jane really is, her emotions displayed as songs from Dirty Computer.
