Prospa 'Prayer' by João Retorta
If you want to remember why you fell in love with dance music in the first place, this is the one for you.
João Retorta travels to Ukraine to capture the spirit of a youth subculture devoted to rave, soundtracked by the euphoric techno of Prayer, by the Leeds electronic duo Prospa.
Retorta has created a heightened, impressionistic piece about the kids who get lost in the music - and feeding in their experiences and philosophy throughout the piece via subtitles. As the subtitles become stranger, the line between documentary and fiction is completely blurred. The very stylish visuals serve the music beautifully, aided by a superb edit by Brendan Jenkins.
