David Knight - 7th Nov 2017

Zhang+Knight travel to South East Asia for Naughty Boy and Joe Jonas's One Chance To Dance, to tell the story of two young girls living in rural Vietnam who are infatuated with cinema.

The girls spend their time re-enacting famous movie scenes and dressing up as characters from the films. But when they run away to Hanoi they are unable to recapture the carefree play that they experienced at home. But the sadness that follows the innocent fun hits the right note with the music.

ZHANG+KNIGHT:

"It was thoroughly enjoyable creating a video which featured happiness and dancing for once. Production highlights include a diva buffalo, travelling in a fleet of boats over a lake in pitch darkness, nearly losing the camera (and crew) to a high speed train… and of course watching the phenomenally talented Ha My and Ha Thien Trang recreating the Pulp Fiction twist in the streets of Hanoi. We’re so lucky that all of this was exquisitely captured by Nick Morris."
