David Knight - 15th Mar 2017

Simon Ryninks' video for folk singer-songwriter and actor Johnny Flynn presents a young woman's yearning to escape her grinding existence in London for green fields and rocky coastlines with an effective visual device, cutting betwen identical shots of her in the wildly different places.   

It's Ryninks' second in a series of videos to accompany South African born Flynn's new album Sillion, with the girl's dreams of freedom expressed in scenes shot in a remote corner of South Wales, with Flynn (who also stars in Ryninks' short film Contractor 014352) as her guardian angel.
