Wintersleep 'Amerika' by Scott Cudmore

Wintersleep 'Amerika' by Scott Cudmore

There's a lot happening in this short film by Scott Cudmore. A cinematic visual accompaniment to Wintersleep's Amerika is a multi-faceted vision of an all-too-close-to-home sociopolitical dystopia, with a weakening of the human condition and a biblical apocalypse colliding with one another in a disquieting and harrowing beauty.

The video deviates from a normal 'rock' video by favouring slower pacing and delivering a feeling of menace and foreboding from multiple isolated narrative perspectives. 

The payoff is a gut-punching set of gorgeous visuals that demand you sit and watch for the entire length of nearly seven minutes. The final lines of dialogue damn near killed me...
