MIKA & Cristián Jiménez - The origin of love

Per la title-track del nuovo album, in uscita l'8 ottobre, "The origin of love", Mika ha realizzato, in collaborazione con Cristián Jiménez, regista cileno di "Bonsai", in corsa alla penultima edizione del Festival di Cannes (un Certain regard), uno short-film di cinque minuti.
About the film, Mika said: "This latest short film is a collaboration with the Chilean director Cristian Jimenez. After seeing his film Bonsai, this seemed like an exciting match. I wanted to take the kaleidoscopic dreaminess of the song and pair it up with Cristian's more realistic, surreal and moving imagery. When making these films, I give complete freedom to the director we are collaborating with, in a way that is never possible with a music video. This short film was made in Santiago with Cristian's close team and friends, and with a lot of love. I hope that watching someone else's visual reaction to the song is as surprising and moving for you as it was for me."
Here is what Cristian had to say on the project; "I was very excited when Mika got in touch about this. The song is fantastic, it almost feels like you can touch it. I tried to do something that adds more layers to that texture. It's an urban, very contemporary piece, with a bit of humour and touches of a fairy tale feel. I hope Mika's fans will connect and imagine a broader world beyond."
Ricordiamo che:
This film contains some nudity and scenes that viewers may find offensive. Caution is recommended. Not suitable for under 18s.
Mika non è nuovo a collaborazioni con il mondo cinematografico. Ha ospitato Fanny Ardant nel video di "Elle m'a dit" e ha scritto "Kick-ass" per l'omonimo film di Matthew Vaughn nel 2010.

  1. Non male come video, la canzone si fa ascoltare, anche se credo che Mika debba ancora trovare la sua strada. O forse l'ha persa.
