Nicolas Davenel / KCPK - Who Wants It
After collaborating with Birdy Nam Nam, Brodinski, Nike, Andrea Crews, Nicolas Davenel presents a hard-hitting video that contrasts the traditional and sometimes clichés imagery of hip-hop videos.
The director dives into the dark aesthetics of Eastern Europe amid perfectly cadenced sequences. We meet the character and scenarios at a level that feels uncomfortable and intimate. Many aspects are put in front of the viewer for consideration. From the broken innocence of the young displaying a cracked door to sexuality and violence, the film has a satisfying mixture of subtle exposition and stylised storytelling.
As a filmaker d’auteur and documentarian, Nicolas Davenel is recognized for his impactful and authentically urban shots.
