I have a lot of music video ideas in my drawer, and I rarely use them. But sometimes a song is so powerful you just want to do your thing and to hell with craftmanship. So, here's a video I made for this incredibly beautiful song by The National - it's from their latest album, and you should listen to it :p

At first I was looking for very specifc images to make the story, but as usual when you rummage through video archives, serendipity makes you choose other paths. Yet the result is pretty close to my original idea. I hope you'll like it.

Here are the films from which I took bits and pieces. They are all available on archive.org for free creative use:

- Our Mr Sun : archive.org/details/our_mr_sun
