Fono 'Real Joy' by Simon Cahn
The intimate relationship of two girls takes on a surprising, surreal, and certainly unhinged dimension in the video for Brighton-based DJ Fono's track Real Joy, directed by French filmmaker Simon Cahn.
In short the deep affection of two young girls frolicking in the countryside takes a violent turn - initially in jest, it seems, but then getting more and more fearsome, and blood-soaked. Not that they seem to mind. Cahn's video shows that the margin between love and violence can be very fine indeed.
“The idea for this video came from my love for surprise and contradictions. I thought it would be great to play on the clichés of eerie youth movies like The Virgin Suicides or Morvern Callar, and suddenly transform this friendship and love story into a playful, violent and surreal battle.”
