A gorgeous video for Novo Amor by London/Barcelona-based director Charlie Reader. “If We’re Being Honest” tells the story of an astronaut left stranded after returning from space after many years, as Reader states:

“I wanted to create a simple but powerful story that feels entirely timeless yet is also attuned to the strange situation the world finds itself in now with the global pandemic: the emotional complexities of living in isolation and being detached from loved ones…. the crash-landing felt fitting in its requirement for strength and resolve to make it through. I think it’s a universal story for any struggle and I wanted it to ultimately feel optimistic; projecting a message of hope, resilience and reunification.”
