Autre Ne Veut's video for World War Pt. 2 sees the singer Arthur Ashin carrying a terribly heavy burden.

The video is a nightmarish vision from the mind of Allie Avital, that sees the singer perform in different spaces inside of an airy, modern home... But with a nude, feral woman latched onto him that is clearly here to stay. Read about what inspired the video's unsettling aesthetic below.


"Visually, we took our inspiration from Michael Haneke films such as Funny Games and Amour, in which the horrific and the grotesque emerges from mundane, sunlit environments.

"Working with Arthur was incredible because he's such a brave artist. Our aesthetic sensibilities are closely aligned and it was a real opportunity to explore some of the more abject and "difficult" territories of filmmaking. It's rare that an artist is not only willing to go there with you but is excited about it."
