Kate Boy 'Higher' by Ben Strebel
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.
"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!"
