A haunting video for British Columbia-raised, Toronto-based singer-songwriter Sam Tudor by Vancouver filmmaker Lucas Hrubizna (previously featured here). “Joseph in the Bathroom” represents a personal homecoming for Tudor as he explores the dark realities of small town life, returning to his old high school to confront his past with newfound clarity. Travelling with Tudor to Williams Lake and casting real students from the area, Hrubizna found himself recalling eerily similar imagery, sensations and characters from his own school days:

“Listening to his words, I began to envision the school as a physical embodiment of Sam’s mind and the way we move through it as his stream of conscious thought. As we drift through the building, the vacant bodies of both teenagers slither lifelessly along the ground, pulled from room to room by an invisible force. They have no agency within the context of Sam’s headspace. They exist in his mind as faceless objects, seemingly part of the school itself.”

This is the third in a trilogy of video collaborations for the album Quotidian Dream. Click here to check out their previous video, “New Apartment,” if you haven’t already. Watch “Joseph in the Bathroom” above and see full credits below!
