Lassamie Prasimay - 22nd May 2019

In the video for Jessi Williams & Coyote, co-directed by Kimberly Stuckwisch and Melora Donoghue, the dreamlike atmosphere is matched to the physical and metaphorical struggles of Jessi’s past, present and future, embodied in the casting of her real-life mother and daughter in the film. 

The twangy guitar and lilting piano cast a beautiful spell over the visuals, elucidating the ideas of motherhood, aging and domesticity across three generations.
 


Directors Kimberly Stuckwisch and Melora Donoghue:

"Career or Family? That’s a choice women have had to make since the dawn of the sexual revolution and beyond,” Kimberly and Melora say together. “Today, women are finding ways to choose both, but the path is still paved with hard considerations, compromise, and balance.”
 
“In our video for ‘Roam, Little Gypsy, Roam,’ by casting three generations of the same family and using clever camera tricks, the story seamlessly moves through a day in the life of our heroine as she is confronted with her past and future selves. Ultimately, in the end she must decide which path to take to fulfill her true ambitions. It's something we as women deal with daily, but should feel liberated by the freedom to choose."
