Sweet Gin and Cold Wine

 

 

Surrounded by temptations of the world of Western consumer culture, Amin and Hoda are in constant struggle to free their relationship from the shackles of traditional moral values and sexual taboos. A fight, a few drinks too many, and Amin finds himself in a new relationship - with a storefront mannequin. Unlike Hoda, the new girl is a game for anything. And she doesn’t talk as much. A whimsical portrait of a young generation at a crossroads.

Shishani - Calling you

Shishani is searching for her loved one in a desolated mythical dessert area, in a town taken over by sand in the Namibian Dessert.

It is a low-budget music video shot in Namibia. The goal of the film is to implement modern contemporary photography into a music video. The video is shot without movement - only still shots. This is a research to deconstruct a music video and to build it with different rules; no camera movement.
Mainstream african music videos are in contrast to this video, here movement and coolness are a the most important element.
