Luke Bather - 1st Mar 2017

French duo The Blaze - that's Jonathan Alric and Guillaume Alric – direct a layered and cinematic homecoming for their song Territory, the follow-up to the MVA-award winning video for Virile.

Shot in Algiers, the video follows a man reunited with his family after spending time out of the country. The gorgeous surroundings are an incredible backdrop to the focused study of male friendship and bravado that takes on a primal life thanks to some dynamic choreography.

France's historic involvement in Algeria and Algiers in particular, and the images of a group of men in dominant display, add layers of meaning to the concept of territory, this video very clearly establishes itself as an intelligent and incisive work.
