Daniel Brereton directs an intriguing video for French artist Chevalrex, set along a forgotten railroad in the post-industrial North. 

The promo for Tant De Fois features a group of people that remind us of ourselves, at different points in time. We are shown portraits of the group staring wistfully into the distance, before banding together to burn an effigy of the artist, which seems to bring a certain kind of contentment to the characters. 

Chevalrex - real name Rémy Poncet - appears on an old TV throughout, glitching in a series of Hi8 portraits. His presence is unsettling yet comforting to the characters, building upon the enigmatic themes of the concept. 

The work is stunning in every way, and the desaturated colour palettes from DoP Simon Plunket and colourist Jack McGinity add a surreal and ever so slightly haunting edge to the aesthetic.
