Parisi ft RZA 'No Refuge' by Ben Strebel
Ben Strebel has directed a striking music video for Italian duo Parisi and Wu Tang Clan's RZA that highlights the desperate situation faced by the millions caught up in the global refugee crisis.
In a collaboration with US creative agency Stay In School, Strebel the trauma experienced by ordinary people forced to leave their homes is expressed by the actions of a group dropped in a misty nowhere by a coach. They start to move, which then becomes a dance that becomes a reaction ot the endless movement, and seemingly hopeless journey to an unknown destination. The strength of the piece is how it highlights individuals as well as the group, offering a window into the desperate world of the refugee.
Ail proceeds from streams and sales of the song will be donated to the UNHCR - the United Nations Refugee Agency - to aid the ongoing refugee crisis.
"lt sits uncomfortably close to home seeing innocent families who have escaped war and destruction only to be ill-treated and regarded like criminals when they're in need of safety." says Feh Tarty, a native of war-torn Liberia and Creative Partner of Stay in School. "This project is a perfect marriage between awareness displayed beautifully and effortless action. Simply play or purchase to help."
