The latest video for French electronic producer Rone (aka Erwen Castex) is for the title track of his 2017 album Mirapolis, and has been created by his sister, director/illustrator/designer Aurelie Castex. It's also a delightful thing - a hand-drawn journey via paper plane to the party going on at the other side of the universe.

it has the immutable quality of a classic illustrated children's book. A French one, of course.

AURELIE CASTEX:

“In infinite space, a tiny woman pilots a paper plane. On the Mirapolis planet, among a crowd of burlesque characters, a man swallows it by accident. He finds himself instantly tiny on his turn. 

“Then begins for him a crazy race. He will cross giant shoes, dive into the seabed of a tin can, will climb on a planet that smokes a pipe… until a big party in which a merry and motley crowd dances on the shoulders of a giant: Rone.”
