David Knight - 23rd Sept 2013

Dave Ma's move to LA has been the catalyst for his impressive transformation into a director of intriguing, hard-hitting narratives - firstly with his video for Flight Facilities' Claire De Lune, and now this one for Movement's Us. 

This focusses on a young man's initiation into a gang, and the trauma and tragedy that follows. Powerful stuff - which works well with the brooding electronica of the track.
