David Knight - 9th May 2017

Noah Lee's video for Sonder's Too Fast begins with the sight of a young boy with his chest torn open, holding his own heart. But what follows is not quite as harrowing as that opening suggests.

This is a dream vision of the boy exploring his own domain, which is the wide open prairie. His journey is paralleled by a similar one made on foot by an adult - the young boy's older self. But it's as much as about absorbing the images - evidently shot on film, crafted by Christopher Ripley, who also graded the video - as deciphering the story. Sit back and enjoy.




"We put a lot of blood, sweat, tears and more tears into this one. I'm happy to finally see it breathe and exist in its own world. I wanted to create a parallel between the visuals and the sounds that echoed the parallel between the lead characters younger and older self.”
