Emel Mathlouthi 'Ensen Dhaif' by Allie Avital
After her viral success with protest song Kelmti Horra that soundtracked the Tunisian revolution, Emel Mathlouthi returns with a powerful clip courtesy of Allie Avital.
Featuring two topless male dancers bound and draped in shrouds, the video uses minimal set decoration, wonderful costume and a powerful red and black colour scheme to explore themes of oppression and revolution. The result is a rhythmic and intense battle cry.
“Between myself, Emel, and the dancers, we all had a different interpretation of oppression, whether in relation to dictatorship, racism, police brutality, gender roles, or the ways in which we oppress ourselves.
"With the choreography and editing, I really wanted to express a rhythm of urgency, violence, and perhaps an uplifting sense of revolution.” (via NOWNESS)
