Everything becomes whole
Posted on December 5, 2011
I was sent the link to this video a few weeks ago and, having watched it a few times now, I’m still undecided about it. I’m just not sure it works.
Here’s the text of the email I received introducing the artist and the video:
“I wanted to introduce you to the new video from Billboard-acclaimed singer/songwriter, Sarah Fimm, for the song “Everything Becomes Whole”.
The video was inspired by real-life accounts of violence against women; whose end result is a visually haunting and emotional short film. The video depicts a relationship that quickly turns from loving to abusive, with the male character overpowering and physically harming the female character. Sarah’s hope is to shine light on the issue, and create a call-to-action that inspires others to get involved with organizations determined to bring an end to the issue.
And here’s the video: (Trigger warning)
Like I said, I’m not sure what I think about this: I’m not convinced it works, but then I also think the film’s probably a bit too arty for my tastes. The song’s growing on me though.
