David Knight - 20th Oct 2014

Newly-signed Stink directors Wilkins & Maguire capture the action-packed, heart-rending story of two child jockeys competing in a jawdroppingly dangerous Indonesian bareback horse race - in their music video for Andy C & Fiora's Heartbeat Loud.

Wilkins & Maguire are Leo Maguire and Robert Wilkins, who teamed up to create the acclaimed Channel 4 doc Gypsy Blood - a portrayal of fatherhood and masculinity within the traveller community, after Leo had won the coveted Getty Grant for his photography work telling stories of bare-knuckle fighters, and the code of honour handed down the generations, in that community. Leo and Robert then went on to make the BAFTA-nominated Dogging Tales, and Soweto Spinning, the latter about a post-apartheid search for freedom of expression.

And their debut music video – part-documentary, part-drama – vividly demonstrates their ability to gain the trust of members of a community to tell their real yet remarkable story in a powerful fashion.
