Luke Bather - 27th Mar 2017

Jackson Ducasse directs a moody midnight dream piece for Ritual's 'Drown The Lovers.'

Billed as part one of a three-part short film series for the band, this one takes place on the shore of a body of water, shrouded in darkness. In a dreamlike interpretation of the song, a woman (played by Ritual's own mononymous singer Mononoke) steps out of a car and enters the water, to cleanse herself of past lovers whilst whoever it is she's with remains locked in the car and helpless. Certainly a mysterious start to the trilogy.
