Sevdaliza mourns the sudden death of her lover in the sensual, dreamlike drama for Hear My Pain Heal, a triumphant return to music videos by Ian Pons Jewell.
James Massiah 'Natural Born Killers (Ride For Me)' by Ian Pons Jewell
Ian Pons Jewell is back with the first of two new music videos, for London-based poet, musician and artist James Massiah - and brings us the end of the world in his own inimitable fashion.
The video for Massiah's Natural Born Killers shows a city facing the ultimate unbearable heatwave, one that brings about a rush of dopamine, as the inhabitants of the city sweat out their final hours. The heat is inescapable, and Pons Jewell brings us a snapshot of an epic storyline featuring different characters - including Massiah, the last person on Earth to retain any cool.
Everyone else is surrendered to their fate, and not wearing much - or anything at all. Which leads to the inspired use of VFX in the final scene where Pons Jewell puts his own characteristically off-the-wall twist on this parable of global heating - a melted man.
Shot in Buenos Aires, Mauro Chiarello’s cinematography focuses on contrast, blown out highlights and a burnt orange colour palette, and helps create a sense of apocalyptic dread in both the exterior and interior locations. Meanwhile, Time Based Arts in London created the inspired VFX, culminating in that extraordinary final scene.
