Watch - Madonna Unveils Short Film 'secretprojectrevolution'

Madonna and Steven Klein’s 17 minute short film, 'secretprojectrevolution', is an honest, raw look at human rights and a call to action against censorship and complacency.

'secretprojectrevolution' marks the launch of Madonna's Art for Freedom campaign, 'an online global initiative to further freedom of expression.'

In a statement, Madonna said her goal was to 'show by the example of secretprojectrevolution my creative commitment to inspire change in the world through artistic expression. I hope my film and other submissions to Art for Freedom will be a call to action and give people a place to voice their own creative expression to help fight oppression, intolerance and complacency.'

Klein described the film as an examination of 'our private prisons. It questions what we do, how we do it and how we treat others. It questions our governments, and our collective thought patterns. Think about it – the power of art can lead to peace.'
