Calista Kazuko 'Benzo Belle' by Thomas James Linton & Philip Reinking
Roll up, roll up - the circus has come to town! Thomas James Linton and Philip Reinking invite you into a weird and wonderful world, in their video for Calista Kazuko.
Calista plays ringmistress to tell the story of our heroine, Benzo Belle, and the circus her life has become.
Depreciated in a loveless marriage, a monotonous carousel existence, delusional and exhausted, self-medicating to numb the pain. Will she escape this Stepford Wife-like prison and live out her fantasies to run away with the circus?
The ambitious video has a highly stylised and fantasy-based aesthetic, incorporating a variety of otherworldly set pieces. Like a fairytale unfolding in an existential, Twilight Zone reality, the feeling of entrapment is bubbling under the surface in every scene, aided by Reinking's dreamlike cinematography and Linton's eye for performance.
