Love Your Friends, Hate Politicians is the first single extracted from the forthcoming second album by spanish electronic duo The Suicide of Western Culture. Their debut album received great reviews and they have since played the festival circuit, impressing crowds at SXSW, Sonar, and Eurosonic. Their second album, Hope Only Brings Pain, is set for release in 2013 on Irregular, and is at once tragic and optimistic in its symphony of organized chaos.
The music video -filmed in Barcelona and New York- has been directed and produced by Actop, the Barcelona creative cell formed by post-production wizard Alvaro P. Posadas and director César Pesquera. They also designed the cover for the album, assuming all the creative direction in the launch of the TSOWC second album.

First off let me slap myself yet again for not noticing the dirty snow marks on my lens. Rookie error!
My first time using the Rokinon 16mm cine lens. It is a wonderful lens and outstanding value. I hope that minus the dirt marks you enjoying seeing it's results.
I was filming in Johnstown, PA which is about 45 mins from where I live. It was a town that suffered a great flood many years ago where many, many people died. The town never recovered. A scary, sad place and I feel sorry for it's residents.
