Video for Young Fathers’ track “Toy” by New York City-based director Salomon Ligthelm (previously featured here). Shot in 35mm, Ligthelm drew inspiration from an image of Kim Jong Un in a crib playing with his toys. As he explains:
“The tone of the track is so visceral and abrasive, which I think marries the political subject matter perfectly and I honestly just really like the idea of seeing dictators behaving like spoilt little children – pissed with the world, because things aren’t going their way. Looking at the political climate of our time, I’d say truth is certainly stranger than fiction.”
