The song HAT by Max and Laura Braun presents an enigmatic story of love, discovery and loss, a sense of home and growing up. Foresaking linearity and coherence, a narrative is conveyed through fleeting glimpses, allowing a subtle landscape of emotion and memory to emerge, its contours defined by thick, soft lines.
This dreamlike style is continued throughout the video made by director Michael Fragstein. Hand painted sequences unfolding in an empty space accompany the song’s lyrics. Replete with ambiguity and symbolism, these images appear, merge and fade. An ongoing chain of events reveals an infinite number of ties between the protagonists, while leaving room for interpretation and a space for the audience to reflect.

    The videoclip - made by Ground’s Oranges - refers to plots, photography and framing typical in the filmmaking themes of the decades between the ’40s and the ‘60s.

    Strong noir atmospheres swiftly become a means of access to this feminine and psychological drama.
    A rough love story, death, regrets occur in an upper middle class environment. The tragedy itself almost put the protagonists’ gender in the background: the whole story is happening between not only two lovers but two anguished human beings. The prologue and epilogue could be considered open to the viewers’ discretion.

    Filmed in one day only in the magnificent Plemmirio Natural Reserve and the abandoned lighthouse of Capo Murro di Porco (situated near Siracusa, Sicily) “L’Altra Guancia” is also a honest homage to Alfred Hitchcock, Michelangelo Antonioni, Ingmar Bergman and their timeless and inspirational masterpieces.
