Fatima Andrade Koehler's dance-based video for Macy Gray is a simple, powerful statement.

Choreographed perfectly and mixed with some nice projection work to enhance the message, Koehler's video explores race, identity and the practice of coexisting. The dancers effortlessly glide around one another on the minimal set in which they hang their laundry out to dry, both literally and metaphorically. The track is a scathing indictment of the white man's ills and it's no coincidence that this is an all-female cast.
