Hawk House – Chill Pill

Hawk House knows that a music video doesn’t need more than a director with a good eye for composition. Zooming in and out into new backgrounds proves to be a smooth way to take the viewer with them. Thomas Rhazi is the French director of the monochromatic journey for ‘Chill Pill’. The song has an easy Souls of Mischief-vibe. Their EP ‘A Handshake To The Brain’ features more of their smart UK rap over melancholic beats. Easy like a Sunday morning.

Il Capo

“Marble quarries are places so unbelievable and striking, they almost feel like they are big theaters or sets.” says Yuri Ancarani, the filmmaker behind the excerpt from the documentary, Il Capo (The Chief). Ancarani follows a quarry boss in Carrara, (Italy) as he guides his men through the extraction process, using a silent language of gesture and sign. “I was so taken by the chief, watching him work,” he says. “How he can move gigantic marble blocks using enormous excavators, but his own movements are light, precise and determined.”
