Sophie Hunger 'Tricks' by Matilda Finn
Matilda Finn's video for Sophie Hunger begins with a silent prelude, in a house shrouded in grief, where a young woman surveys the body of an aged relative, laid out before her burial. But then the body changes.
Suddenly, its all action: a car rally in the forest, a car careering through the woods in a race against time, surrounded by cheering crowds. The driver strives to cut seconds with an ever faster and dangerous drive, to the alarm of the co-driver.
It's the stuff of testosterone-heavy films down the ages, but the difference here is that everyone, from driver to crowd to mourners are female. And as she has done so successfully in the past Finn charts a path in her images - beautfully shot by Ben Fordesman in sun-kissed Ukraine - between urgent reality and a surreal dreamscape. The characters, storyline only make total sense in relation to the track. As it should be.
