Kate Boy 'Higher' by Ben Strebel

Jimmy Brown - 16th Mar 2015

Set against the desolate and beautiful landscape of Kiruna in Sweden, Ben Strebel's first project since joining Caviar late last year is a mysterious and engrossing promo to partner Higher by acclaimed new band Kate Boy.

Filmed in extremely testing conditions - including having only five hours of sunlight per day, and sub-sub-zero temperatures - Ben's metaphor for a 'society under the watchful eye of an oppressive force' focuses on several characters fight against heavy dictatorship who stamp out any individuality.

 

BEN STREBEL:

"The reason this film came together was that the band and I went on this journey as collaborators. From street casting to working in minus 30 degree conditions, the band were hands on and always helpful - a joy to work with and co-conspirators in the making of this strange world in the ice and snow. I hope we work together again soon!"
