A gorgeous portrait of rejuvenation by London-based director and photographer Harvey Pearson. Created for English singer-songwriter Benjamin Francis Leftwich, “Gratitude” was shot at Loch Doine, Scotland in a single take. The 35mm film follows a distressed young man (Connor Newall) as he works to confront the things that are holding him back. As Pearson explains:

“A couple of months ago, Ben sent me ‘Gratitude’, a beautiful and honest track which I instantly connected with. Hearing this track and the story it tells led to a discussion between us about everyone’s personal struggles with inner demons and how they affect everyone individually. This is a film about letting go, a turning point, making peace with your past and moving forward.”
