Lovely simplicity and sweetness to this video for Joy Anonymous’ track “Whale and Bear” by director Tom Ringsby (previously featured here). As Ringsby notes, “Somehow every film made before quarantine feels more relevant than ever”:

“We originally planned this documentary-fiction project to capture real couple Leaf & Helena (and their real cats Zelda & Smudge) as a simple lazy-Sunday video bringing to life Joy Anonymous’ stripped down acoustic track, but it’s now taken on a different meaning entirely. Hopefully we can still find this sort of spirited optimism even after weeks turn into months.”
