David Knight - 4th Apr 2017

Joao Retorta has directed a stylish promo that sees Duvall in Disciples daydreaming a whirl of imagery about lust and desire for On My Mind.

Typically excellent work from DoP Rina Yang establishes the hallucinatory feel, driven home by a kinetic edit executed by Retorta himself.
