Madonna's Secret Project Is Revealed

The teaser clips, AMA session on Reddit and speculation on fan blogs have all lead up to this moment, the revelation of Madonna's Secret Project. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter:

secretprojectrevolution is a 17-minute film she co-directed with Steven Klein that will be released on Sept. 24. It will debut in conjunction with the launch of a digital initiative called Art for Freedom, that will encourage others to submit video, music, poetry and photography that addresses persecution around the world and the personal meaning of freedom and revolution.

"My goal is to show by the example of secretprojectrevolutionmy creative commitment to inspire change in the world through artistic expression," Madonna said in a statement. "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."

"This film operates on many levels," says Klein. "It examines 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."

Interestingly, the film will be released as a BitTorrent bundle, in an effort to dispel the myth that torrents = piracy, according to the San Francisco company.
