James Brown - It's Man's Man's Man's World - Animated

James Brown is a force of nature, a gift from heaven. He invented funk, but it was a symbol of freedom and success for millions of black American in combat for their civic and civil rights, who saw him as a source of hope and pride. Xavier Fauthoux, the director, here visually describes the richness of his life and its times.

This animation was created for this year’s Music Video Challenge. The 2012 Challenge was in celebration of the James Brown catalogue being re-released on iTunes in May, and the re-issuing of the classic James Brown Live at the Apollo album later this year. This is the director's cut version of the video music of James Brown - It's Man's Man's Man's World.
