Hora Bolz directs an impressive music film for El Perro, consisting of visuals for the tracks Call Me When You're Home and Let Me Think That Again.Filmed in southern Spain, the concept is a surrealist twist to the classic Sword Of Damocles story: a couple of outlaws whose life is controlled by destiny and anxiety have to make a decision, to help them understand the true definition of their relationship."The idea for this came hand-in-hand with the location," explains Bolz. "It was really important for me to create a world that felt realistic enough so the surreal elements in it felt authentic. Like when you wake up from a dream, and you need to take a moment to understand what’s going on."For me, the best part when watching a movie - or any art piece - is the interpretation. That’s why I wanted this music video to be like a riddle. It had to be fun for you to decipher, and for me to see what you’ve found."DoP Benjamin Cotgrove adds that the video was shot in extremely testing conditions. "We ended up shooting at the height of summer during 40 degree celsius heat - at times the sun was pretty unbearable," he says. "I knew shooting on 16mm the stock wouldn’t miss a beat and even with our schedule forcing us to shoot when the sun was high noon, film helped to balance the crude, raw sun on the face of our cast."We had an incredible local crew who were not unfamiliar with these conditions and knew exactly how to support us through this: keep a cooler bag ready for the film."
