Die Antwoord is Umshini Wam, by Harmony Korine.

The headlines are getting more and more packed with buzzwords, which can only mean one thing — it's March, the month during which the annual South by Southwest festival occurs in Austin! And we've got the latest news from the imminent hipster cabal: Harmony Korine will use SXSW to premiere his short film Umshini Wam, starring the bacchanalian rap group Die Antwoord.

Here's the official synopsis:

Big dreams, big blunts, big rims, and big guns. It's time to get gangsta gangsta. Ninja and Yo-Landi are wheelchair-bound lovers and real gangstas. They live in the outskirts of civilization, they shoot guns for fun, smoke massive joints, and sleep in the woods. They don't have any bling to show for their gangsta cred, but the world deserves to know who they are. They're tramps, and their wheels are starting to fall off. Ninja become despondent over their vagabond existence, but Yo Landi won't let him give up. What ensues is straight up gangsta mayhem, the realist of the real, true gangsta shit.

That's a lot of "gangsta" for a movie that runs under twenty minutes! But hey, what else are you going to do while you wait in line for the bathroom?
