Molly Burdett’s second collaboration with Glaswegian soul singer Joesef celebrates the freedom and energy of youth, and the infectious power of dancing like no one is watching.

The video focusses upon a working class community, life in a social club, and a sense of wellbeing and confidence of a young boy within that setting, to go off to dance on his own in the indoor bowling area. And that inspires Joesef and his mates to follow his lead, and chance their arm at some impromptu dancing.

Burdett dovetails the documentary look with a bit of heartstring-tugging entertainment - shot on 35mm film by Miles Ridgeway. No wonder she describes the style as "Billy Elliot meets Andrea Arnold."
