Directed by Laura Scrivano :: Concept by Laura Scrivano + Zindzi Okenyo

Zindzi Okenyo and Laura Scrivano have been friends since 2008, when they spent eight hours straight at a theatre show where the entirety of The Great Gatsby was read. They went on to work together at Sydney Theatre Company and discovered a mutual love of film, coffee, contemporary art & bicycles.

As OKENYO began to develop, Laura took a sidestep from theatremaking into film directing, winning the European Union Film Award late last year. At the beginning of 2013 Zindzi asked Laura to direct the music video for her first single BROKEN CHEST.

Loosely based on the Orpheus and the Underworld myth, the BROKEN CHEST music clip skims the surface of two worlds, plunges between worlds, awakens the mystical and evokes the mythical.

BROKEN CHEST is the journey of a single figure, a woman, through the underworld and out the other side, emerging strong, powerful and reborn - a new Amazon.

Broken Chest features Zindzi Okenyo, Lizzie Schebesta, Ben Gerrard & Gideon Mzembe

    Hey! Peter here from Copenhagen, check out my latest work inspired by the rainy streets of this nordic city and the 80s noir of LA.

    A story from a neon world where nothing is personal, everything is just businesses. This world is Hers. Will the tender side hire the darker one to get to the top?
