Xi - SENTIMENTAL SUNSET

Directed by
Beatrix Blaise

Between the sky above and screens below this world explores who are the gamers and who are the gameed.

South London artist Xi release their debut single Sentimental Sunset with a short film by director Beatrix Blaise.

Blaise << This video had so many different chapters. It felt epic in the challenge we faced making it... after ironically postponing our trip to Snowdonia because of a freak snowstorm, we made it there to find gale force winds hit within seconds. I almost fell off a cliff only to be caught by DOP Ollie Richards.

I can only hope the dangers we partook in to make this video made it worthwhile and translated through the film. I wanted to encapsulate the song’s authoritarian commentary into the threat of surveillance, unwarranted punishment and scenes that aren’t human, reality flipped. I like the balance between what’s real, what’s unreal, who the gamer is and who the gamee is. And a world where contained minds are revealed, characters isolated in their own world. >>
