Imagine Dragons 'Crushed' by Ty Arnold

Rob Ulitski - 25th May 2023

Ty Arnold explores the devastating effects of the war in Ukraine, in this solemn promo for Imagine Dragons. 

Following the story of 14-year-old Sasha, we are guided by narrative subtitles on-screen, which detail the story of his life and his home, which was under occupation for five months. 

Shot in a documentary style within a narrative structure of sorts, the story is heartbreakingly raw, and the use of slow motion shots allow the viewers to really take in the gravity of the situation. 

As explained in the video, his story is simply one of thousands, and the destruction on the ground is brought into real focus through Sasha's eyes. It's a reminder that these families are still there, living amongst the chaos, and they haven't given up hope. 

Sasha's story is heartbreaking, and there are thousands more like him who desperately need help. Even today, his family is without electricity and other basic utilities. Please consider donating to United24 and raising your voice for this cause. Donate here:
