David Knight - 8th Mar 2021

Moonga K is held in a moment to explore the outer limits of his own fantasies, whilst in the midst of a crazy baccanal, in Paul Ward's extraordinary vision for the Zambian-born, Botswana-raised, Johannesburg-based artist.

The South African director, making one of his occasional forays from commercials into music videos, has built a dreamlike work on an epic scale, with nods to some classic sci-fi. The VFX work is remarkable and the disorientating nature of the narrative - such as thiere is one - allows the major set-pieces to gather force over the course of the song, Who's It Gonna Be? 

A tour de force, if ever there was one.
