Max Richter 'On The Nature Of Daylight' by George Belfield
The recent re-release of Max Richter's acclaimed album The Blue Notebooks has led to the creation of this music video for it's most celebrated track On The Nature Of Daylight, directed by George Belfield and featuring a characteristically intense performance from A Handmaid's Tale, Top Of The Lake and Mad Men actress Elisabeth Moss.
The video for a song that will be familar from its inclusion on movie soundtracks from Shutter Island to Arrival is a study in human resolve in the face of catastrophe. Moss hears some terrible news in her car, she gets out and starts walking. We follow her journey through deserted streets, city and country, and bear witness to her psychological trauma, courtesy of the skill of Belfield's direction and Steve Annis's cinematography. It's harrowing, but Richter's beautiful music, makes it bearable.
In a statement Moss has said: "When I was asked to do this project it was a dream come true. My work has been inspired by his music for so many years and not a day goes by on set where I don’t have Max’s music playing in my ears before a take. His music and my acting have gone hand in hand for a long time. So for me the opportunity to act to one of his most prolific pieces was such an incredible honour.
"Working with George and this entire team was so artistically fulfilling and an experience I will never forget."
