Roseaux 'I Am Going Home' by Allie Avital
Allie Avital brings to life a character with extraordinary powers in her video for Roseaux, the French music project including Aloe Blacc among its members.
It's a young woman in search of love, who discovers that her touch delivers instant death - a sensational power nonetheless treated with huge sensitivity by Avital. This is a beautifully cinematic piece, beautifully shot by Albert Salas, where the European location adds a strong sense of gothic tragedy to the story of the girl, played by Sahné Rasonaivo.
She’s less of a femme fatale and more of a Lenny from Of Mice and Men
"I’ve had this character in my mind for a long time: a woman who can’t help but harm/kill everyone she comes in contact with. She’s less of a femme fatale and more of a Lenny from Of Mice and Men, except instead of killing bunnies it’s the men she comes in contact with.
"On one level it’s a metaphor for people who desperately want a partner but are too self-protective and so hurt them instead. And then on another level I was thinking about intimacy and nature: whether physical contact with others is a necessity of being human."
