“Luna” by Giovanni Bolzani Valenzano

A lovely ode to motherhood by London-based director Giovanni Bolzani Valenzano (previously featured here). Choreographed by Greta O’Brien Vial and set to music by Piet Row aka Pietro Marchesi, “Luna” follows the nightly adventures of a single working mom as imagined by her young daughter. As Valenzano explains:

“The video portrays Luna’s dream, a little girl whose mum, Greta, is single and has to work late night shifts at a children’s hospital. Luna dreams of her mum as a magical and fierce creature.This music video is a little tale of the moment in our life’s before we see our parents simply as people. The video delves into a kids perception of her mothers daily life.”

Joep Beving’s “Anamnesis & Henosis” by Michaël I. Sewandono

A beautiful collaboration between director Michaël I. Sewandono and Dutch composer/pianist Joep Beving. Set to tracks “Henosis” and “Anamnesis,” the film follows multiple characters, unwittingly mimicking each other across time and space. While leading separate lives, each individual shares an inner voice and innate knowledge that parallels the way Beving seeks to establish deeper connections between those he describes as “wondering souls” through his music.

Miranda Johansen – “vos, sinuoso”

So many creative elements in this video for Miranda Johansen’s track “vos, sinuoso.” Directed by Johansen and Bruno Adamovsky of Buenos Aires-based collective La Casa de al Lado:

“The serpentine path of self discovery and realization appears to be a dream. Not necessarily a bad or a good dream, but one of multiplicity and illusion. Through her new song, Miranda channels all her possibilities, as she gives us hope for what’s to come. The video, in its own way, reminds us to be present and perceptive, and not cave in to appearances.”

Haski & Tmin – “Kill Me” (Mature)

Death takes the form of a beautiful woman (Alexandra Cherkasova-Sluzhitel) in this video for Russian rappers Haski and Maslo Chernogo Tmina by writer-director Lado Kvataniya (previously featured here). “Kill Me” follows Haski and Tmin as they perform a series of mystical rituals to go on a date with Death, as Kvataniya explains:

“The whole video is a metaphor about the inability to find peace, necessary understanding and personal fulfilment in real life. The clinical death of both protagonists should not be taken literally. This is a transition, an intended escape which can be compared to a dream or a fairy tale, the world of fantasies where we often build castles in the air but where we can never get into.”

Warning: Some viewers may find the themes and imagery in this video disturbing.

Saro – “Nothing Remains”

Lovely look to this video for Saro by Los Angeles-based director Alex Cook (previously featured here). An exploration of the words and feelings that go unspoken, “Nothing Remains” speaks to the ability of music and art to express the things so often left buried in our own inner worlds. As Saro explains:

“I wrote ‘Nothing Remains’ about the anger stage of mourning a loss. When I lost something so close to me with no explanation, it felt like all I could do was attempt to scream away the pain. I wanted the music video to embody the healing properties of music and how I use it as an escape from reality. Music can truly make it feel like the whole world freezes for a moment.”

Mattiel – “Millionaire”

Nice director’s cut of Mattiel’s track “Millionaire” by directors Alimzhan Alan Sabir and Matthew Addington (previously featured here). Shot documentary-style at a county fair in Forsyth County, GA, the result is a subtle commentary on our entertainment-seeking culture:

“The need for instant gratification is a very American, western-world thing. No matter the mental or physical cost, entertainment is always readily available. But funny enough, inside this huge funfair of rides and games, a lot of the people there didn’t look entertained at all.”

 

Shot & Directed by Alimzhan Alan Sabir & Matthew Addington
Produced by Mattiel Brown & Matthew Addington
Song by Swilley, Brown, Michael
