Apacalda 'Find Me In The Morning' by Maïlis

Rob Ulitski - 15th Nov 2022

Maïlis directs a touching promo for Apacalda, featuring dancer Brittney Canda.

The film tells the story of a tragic event that took place in the artist’s childhood; the death of her father. He died due to a gas leak in the heating system of the room he had rented during his travels in Romania. This room was intended to share intimate moments with his mistress, a young woman who also lost her life after this encounter.

Written in the first person and from his perspective, the lyrics are based on what her idea of the last minutes of her father’s life were and the thoughts that were coming to him in that final hour.

Shot with lingering, foreboding shots of the characters left behind, the video experiments with movement and space to visualise the internal conflict of the situation. 

"We imagined that with a dizzied mind, in an almost dreamlike state, his last thoughts were devoted to them, his family, his wife and two children that he was now leaving behind," Maïlis mentions.

"There is a sense of guilt, shame, but also a dominating 'fact of the matter' telling of what is, leaving the listener to experience a lack of resolve. A glimpse into the void that was created in that fateful moment." 

Beautiful work that pulls at the heartstrings, and creates a truly haunting atmosphere.
