Malik Diao X Fred Red 'Dighnasty' by C. Yuhki Oka

Rob Ulitski - 23rd Feb 2023

C. Yuhki Oka directs an evocative promo for Malik Diao X Fred Red. 

The video for Dighnasty takes the form of a visual poem, exploring how the mind can wander around and what happens if it can't find its way back home.

The enigmatic narrative is presented through movement and character, with a group of individuals who transcend the present moment in time, in surrender to a higher power or meaning. 

"Some call it a soul, some call it energy, some call it a ghost - but the idea of mind and body connect them all," Yukhi explains. "In every culture and religion, there is always some kind of term that represents us as humans rather than the flesh and body that we live in."

From the eccentric styling through to the minacious red lighting in the latter part of the video, it's a stirring vision that commands viewer's full attention.
