Grandbrothers 'Bloodflow' by Hugo Jenkins

Grandbrothers 'Bloodflow' by Hugo Jenkins

Hugo Jenkins' clip for Dusseldorf-based duo Grandbrothers is a stream-of-conscious study of memory, family and spirituality.

The clip uses multiple formats in a disparate, fragmented editing style to explore the ideas of spiritual therapeutic tasks and unwilling self-improvement exercises - each one encouraged by family members or outsiders. It's a sinister atmosphere that pits time, memory and the self against one another in a beautifully composed frame.

From the director

HUGO JENKINS:

“When I first heard the track I was really intrigued by how certain parts repeated yet kept evolving in a way that felt amazingly effortless. This made me reflect on different forms of spirituality and therapy that often involve repetitive tasks.

"I tried to let this repetition inform the way the film is structured, often returning to a particular idea but revealing a little more each time we see it."
