JOSIE MAN - CUTS & BRUISES

Directed by
Andrea Mae Perez

Healing one another.

London-based, Spanish and American-Ecuadorian filmmaker Andrea Mae Perez joined artist Josie Man to make a film that feels attainable to all. In this video singer Josie Man acts as a narrator to the story lines of multiple couples as we voyeuristically look upon different romantic scenes. In the course of their loving connections, their personal wounds heal.

The core idea behind this video is how we all, as human beings, are in some way or another wounded. We carry our cuts and bruises with us through life. Some of them are really noticeable, whereas others are better hidden. Either way, the message Perez and Josie Man wanted to spread is how love is always the biggest healer.

Perez "This song really resonated with me since the beginning. Relating to another human so closely is like life placing a huge mirror in front of oneself. Sometimes it's painful but it's also such a huge chance to confront our ghosts and to heal. After the year everyone has experienced, both being forced apart from the people we love or forced into the closest relationships yet, working on this music video felt like a nice opportunity to create visuals that provide hope and focus on the power love has to guide us through the storm."
