Napoleon IIIrd 'The Scrape' by Paul & Simon Wade
Paul & Simon Wade's video for Leeds institution Napoleon IIIrd's The Scrape is a 7-minute slow-motion study in grief - specifically the anger part of the cycle.
It's an exercise in performative catharsis, as people destroy things symbolic to their experiences in an abandoned warehouse, effectively performing for other grievers. Ending with a procession of fire, the video gives a barren and emotionless aesthetic to grieving rituals that has its own power.
Made for less than £400, the clip impressively focuses on the coldness of the location help to set the emotional tone.

"'The Scrape' is the point where sorrow becomes destructive.
"We shot 'The Scrape' in a flood damaged, abandoned automotive silicon hose factory in Mirfield, West Yorkshire. The building was raised to the ground just weeks after this film was shot and a Lidl is to be built in its place. I think somehow and in some way, this might be kind of fitting. The price of love is grief and grief can be so hard we can forget what love is. I am a temporary carbon marker. I am merely conjoined space. Like death, the fight to survive consumes us."
