Sevdaliza mourns the sudden death of her lover in the sensual, dreamlike drama for Hear My Pain Heal, a triumphant return to music videos by Ian Pons Jewell.

In this labour of love project, shot in Italy, Pons Jewell establishes a powerfully cinematic atmosphere before introducing a brilliant visual motif to symbolise the departure of the soul of the deceased, but above all the video belongs to the smouldering, body and soul-bearing presence of Sevdaliza herself.
