Check it out below, as well as some quotes related to the short and the original music video below.
“Expands the music video into a film without abandoning the structure of a clip. The future has become reality. And the threat lies in the proximity of the military. Memories of a past summer.”
I wish I could remember every little moment. But I can’t. Why do I only remember the moments that I do.I wonder what happens to the others. A group of suburban youths. Back then, in the summer, so long ago. They couldn’t leave town because outside the country was at war and the military controlled life and all gateways.The teenagers wander aimlessly about town. Winter is a long way off. And love and longing and friendship still mean – everything.
