Joshual 'Devil Gaze' by Nogari
Nogari directs an intimate, introspective visual for Joshual's Devil Gaze, shot in one afternoon in São Paulo before lockdown measures were implemented.
The video tells the story of two young boys connecting and sharing a moment of intimacy, visualised through fluid choreography and movement.
Shot by Brazilian D.O.P Maurício Padilha, the cinematography is hypnotic and striking - the overblown highlights of the outside world balance beautifully with the orange glow of the practical lamps, and the camera dances in unison with the actors, perfectly matched to the choreography.
Our conversations reminded me of my own teenage years... [which] had a signiﬁcant impact on my personality.
"When I heard Joshual's track, the ﬁrst thing that caught my imagination, was the atmospheric aspect of it. It narrates the story of a young boy struggling with his ﬁrst-love emotions. Joshual himself is only 19 years old and our conversations reminded me of my own teenage years, when I used to spend the afternoons at my parent's home, brawling with my feelings. Those years had a signiﬁcant impact on my personality.
"I struggled with accepting my sexuality and spent time deconstructing patterns of masculinity that were expected of me. I wanted this ﬁlm to capture a small snippet of one of those days — days where we allow ourselves to break the box we are shaped into and, in turn, share a sensitive and intimate moment with someone we have a connection with, beyond any prejudice or stereotype. Moments of love and freedom."
