"Youth" is an adventurous short-form cinematic delve off the beaten cliffs of the music video, and into the promised realm of musical noir and song-driven syncopated linear storytelling.
The film director, here as the unseen visual keymaker, reimagines and unfolds the lyrical journey of the young Lost Boys/Auburn kids, their mission and their allies like a quilt that is open to multi-interpretation. The real protagonist, as it is hoped here, would be the listener looking in.
The story of “Youth” is a familiar yet cursory tale of a quest set in a melancholic Malaysia of the future, where concepts like hope and courage and sacrifice can no longer be taken for granted.
