Lovely video for Heavy Chest by New Zealand-based director Josiah Watson (previously featured here). More of a visual poem than a traditional narrative, Watson describes “Just You” as an elegy to the time we lose trying to escape our thoughts, brought together through bite-sized vignettes of a girl searching for ‘something more’ in the mundane:

“The film jumps between two completely different worlds, one of which presents scenes which should feel all too familiar and the other being altogether more abstract and dreamlike. In the end we wonder whether it was a dream or a brief moment of pure, unadulterated escape”

Watch “Just You” above and check out some behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot below!
