SOHN 'Hard Liquor' by Jovan

SOHN 'Hard Liquor' by Jovan

Jovan teams up with SOHN for an intense, artful look at the circles of life for Hard Liquor.

Kicking off the New Year with a badass statement of intent, this is a black and white, high contrast look at the shapes that surround and trap us, sometimes without even realising, represented here in various ways from the introspective to the intergalactic.

It's a beautifully paced, minimalist piece that was shot in the director's home country of Serbia - and features a performance of volcanic intensity by the Croatian actor Dado.
 

From the director

JOVAN:

"SOHN sent us a frame from Jurassic Park, a cup of water with ripples in it resonating from the massive steps of the approaching T-Rex. The concentric circles inspired me to look for more circles, not only in the physical world, but even more importantly within my inner life.

"A line is not enough to symbolise the vector of one’s life, I feel it’s maybe better represented as a progression of circles that are chained together. So this video is about circles and lines, the past, present and future, regret, anger, despair… being lost in the tunnel of ones inner life and the physical labyrinth that surrounds us. In the end we face our own self, and we are led to dive deeper within.

"To me the video is very meaningful on a personal level, but I tried to paint it in such a way so everyone could potentially reflect on themselves. We shot the video back home in Serbia and were lucky to find some amazing locations, and a wonderful crew. But it was Dado, one of the most talented theatre actors in Croatia today, who really gave the video it’s substance."
