Childish Gambino Debuts Latest Short Film, 'Chicken And Futility'

Childish Gambino, A.K.A. Donald Glover, is back with a brand new short film, "Chicken and Futility." The three-minute long film shows Glover and two friends discussing Chick-fil-A, moths and the moon -- while spending a lazy Sunday indoors. The short was written and directed by Childish Gambino, and produced by Complex Media.

Glover recently sat down with the media group to discuss his burgeoning comedy career and his work as Childish Gambino. Read the entire interview at Complex.

This is not the "Community" actor's first foray into directing. In 2013, he released a 24-minute short film titled, "Clapping for the Wrong Reasons," in which he starred alongside Chance The Rapper and Danielle Fishel.

Glover will depart from his iconic role on "Community" in the show's fifth season, only appearing in five of its scheduled 13 episodes, in order to pursue new projects. In 2013, he announced that he would be creating and starring in a new show for FX, tentatively titled "Atlanta." In December of 2013, he released his latest studio album titled, "Because the Internet."

This story has been updated to include mention of Glover's interview and work with Complex Media.
