Anthony Byrne's intense video for Hozier draws us into the depths of a bizarre and disfunctional relationship, that takes place at a eery Gothic dinner party.
Novo Amor 'Utican' by Ethan Graham
Next month Partizan are bringing back DARK ROOM as a base for a roster young, developing directors, working across branded content, music videos and animation. Ethan Graham is among the inaugural roster of the new DARK ROOM, and his new video for Novo Amor demonstrates how he is a new directing talent to be reckoned with.
It begins with a young man running through a desert, an older man driving in pursuit, and the video for Utican is an unfolding drama of emotions, around the central theme of grief. it's a strongly told story which offers emotional twists, based in sueprb cinematography by David Foulkes, and ideally suited to Novo Amor's heartfelt music.
“It’s a culmination of meanings - from a young boy’s realisation of looming adulthood and sexuality, to he and his father coming to terms with the loss of his mother. His memory of her is slowly deteriorating and the only way he can hold onto this is by wearing her dresses and applying her make-up the way she used to when he was a little boy.
“It’s an emotive coming-of-age story that nurtures a masculine relationship in a delicate way.”
