Darkstar 'Pin Secure' by Matt Halsall

Cat Velez - 8th Sept 2015

Matt Halsall has expressed his anger and indignation at the result of the UK General Election in May through this cri de coeur for Darkstar's Pin Secure. There is no subtle insinuation to be found here. The dizzyingly immoderate storyline sees burnt-out shop workers tormented by a sexually and psychologically abusive boss (reimagined as an evil Koala Bear) and a monstrous, animalistic ruling class. Clearly Matt Halsall has a bone to pick...

MATT HALSALL:

"The 'hard working' people of Britain are tricked on a daily basis to hate asylum seekers, immigrants and 'benefit cheats', not tax-dodging corporations or corrupt politicians. I wanted to somehow reflect the bleak, devastating reality of this in a video that could not be anything other than shocking, vile and attention grabbing."
