David Knight - 3rd May 2016

Anders Malmberg creates a sensual and erotic world of youthful sexual discovery for Danish band Lightwave Empire's Pleasure And Pain, and an unabashed celebration of the body beautiful, with fine photography by DoP Linda Wassberg. 

"The video is an exploration of different borderlands," says Malmberg. "As the title suggests, the borderline between pain and pleasure, but also the borderland between sensuality and sexuality, as well as humor and melancholy. The ambition was to create a warm and positive video, a 'seize the day' atmosphere, a sense of freedom, flow and optimism, but with an existential depth, and a sense of doubt built into the joyful and hedonistic feeling."
