Loyle Carner 'Georgetown' by Machine Operated

Rob Ulitski - 15th Aug 2022

Directing duo Machine Operated deliver an intimate documentary-style music video for Loyle Carner's Georgetown - shot in the eponymous capital of Guyana.

The pair travelled with Loyle to the country of his father, documenting his relationship with identity, community and belonging, with cinematographers Dan Landin - making a rare return to music videos - and Ola Pontakos.

It starts with the words of Guyanese playwright/poet John Agard reciting his poem 'Half-Caste', and from that intriguing point, the film interweaves striking portraiture with understated performance vignettes, captured in a breathtakingly cinematic way, with gorgeous composition, colour palettes and textures. It's stunning work.
