Luke Bather - 25th Jan 2017

The second part of Eoin Glaister's Silhouettes Trilogy for Aquilo picks up pretty much where part one left off, but where that focussed on the ice-skating champ daughter here the emphasis is on her dedicated and hard-pressed father, played by Perry Benson. And it quickly reveals the reason for the closeness of the father and daughter relationship.

Set mostly in a social club's ballroom class - the video takes a warm direction with some brilliant lighting design to highlight the emotional resonance of the scenario. Again, what would seem normally quite happy is tinged with an air of melancholy and the video again ends on a sombre tone. And Benson is really great here. 

A wonderfully nuanced exploration of family drama that leaves us wanting part three to come out soon!
