Rob Ulitski - 25th Feb 2021

French metal gods Gojira spend a night at the museum with mind-bending results, in Charles De Meyer's promo for Born For One Thing. 

The video follows a security guard who chases a shapeshifter through the winding corridors of the sprawling museum, after the character takes a weird little pill. 

The hallucinatory aesthetic bleeds into the cinematography, as DoP Maximiliaan Dierickx focuses on rotating camera moves and abstract transitions, building an abstract maze with no way out. 

It's an explosive return for the group, who release their first album in five years in April.
