Barcelona-based directing collective CANADA have been rocking quite a lot of people’s worlds for the past few months, with their breakthrough music video for El Guincho – Bombay having enough iconic, Jodorowsky-esque imagery in one piece to fill an encyclopaedia!
Nicolás Méndez (from the collective) is back, with CANADA’s first piece since signing with Partizan. It’s no surprise that CANADA’s use of golden breasts got the attention of New York camp-royalty Scissor Sisters.
This jaw-droppingly epic collaboration is a joy to behold, and a perfect pairing of talents (so, massive hats off to commissioner Dilly Gent of Polydor for that one!).
Incredible cinematography by Gomez del Moral and David Valldeperez completes the high production values of this erotically charged wonder. It rounds off CANADA’s exploration of vintage-style montage work perfectly, and I for one will be very interested to see what’s more to come from these Spanish artists. Repeatedly watch-able and, for you all those that need warning, it does contain some nudity!
