Rob Ulitski - 18th Sept 2020

Thora Hilmars rouses the world back to life in her stunning video for Of Monsters and Men. 

Shot just before lockdown, the promo is inspired by the Icelandic "dark season" and the aftermath of madness. 

Performing in a neon-lit warehouse, the group attract a series of unique characters, all of whom are waking up to their new realities. 

DoP Thor Eliasson captures a sense of wonder and awakening through contrasting the artifice of the inside world with the abundant nature of the outdoors, reflecting on what life means to each of us and how we live out our days on this planet.
