Jimmy Brown - 28th July 2014

Parisian filmmaker Simon Cahn casts rising fashion model Adwoa Aboah who gives a compelling and hynotic performance in his promo for We Are Shining's Hot Love.

Set in a corner shop on the dimly-lit streets of North East London, Cahn's swirling, almost psychedelic video - complimenting the dense wall of sound within the soundtrack perfectly - received its premiere on the Nowness channel on Friday.
