David Knight - 7th Nov 2013

The beautiful Jodie Smith plays the singing nun who flees the convent to find success as a singer and VJ on Eighties music TV – but perhaps only in her imagination – in Isaiah Seret's little pearl for Devendra Banhart's Für Hildegard von Bingen -  a project for MOCAtv.

This is exquisite – it's wonderfully shot by Wyatt Troll – which just adds weight to Isaiah's burgeoning reputation as a narrative stylist.
