Saam Farahmand ventures into short film territory with this elliptical narrative that has been “inspired by the music and magic of Daughn Gibson”.
Mick Jagger 'Gotta Get A Grip' by Saam Farahmand
In his second video for Mick Jagger, Saam Farahmand encapsulates a chaotic world, including the stifling heat, within the nightclub from hell.
Like England Lost, it's a metaphor, beautifully delivered. It's also unmistakeably contemporary. The paranoia, brutality and madness of the modern world are all present in the sweaty confines of the club, where Jemima Kirk plays the girl who questions the system, the clique divisions and the devotion to the godlike DJ.
All this works well with Jagger's Gotta Get A Grip - a not bad at all Stones-like workout.
