Luke Bather - 23rd Mar 2017

A man has a lot to wrestle with in this stark period piece from Richard Paris Wilson for KAIS.

With an incredible location on his side in the form of an Alabama ghost town, Wilson's story of guilt and religious duality in the 1920s is a harsh little narrative in a harsh little place where nobody seems to win.

Dripping in symbolism, the clip is an atmospheric, sinister film normally not seen occupying country music videos.
