Foo Fighters 'Waiting On A War' by Paola Kudacki
The threat of conflict hangs over a young girl's head, in Paola Kudacki's affecting promo for Waiting On A War - her second video for Foo Fighters.
Drawing parallels between intergenerational fears of war and destruction, the video opens with a teenage girl - played by Thalia Gerloff - pacing about a desolate wasteland, isolated and broken.
Intercutting nostalgic memories of carefree times, the concept builds to a riotous crescendo, with the younger generation fighting back against outdated institutions and ideals.
It's a striking piece, anchored by gloomy, haunting cinematography and an overarching expectation of disaster. At the same time, a glimmer of hope remains, suggesting that things might improve if we can work out our issues as a society.
This film is the youth view on the outdated structures and institutions that have repressed the freedom of expression.
"Youth is such a beautiful thing. We are innocent. We are pure. We feel the excitement in our bodies and our hearts. We live the experiences to the fullest. We are vibrant, euphoric, emotional, we are curious and we challenge ourselves. We want to do it all and see it all. We have big dreams.
"As we grow up we begin to struggle with the real issues of life, but that powerful purity makes us see things in a different way, with a naked and truthful eye.
"This film is the youth view on the outdated structures and institutions that have repressed the freedom of expression, and the darkness of the world that surrounds us. As the morning comes our hero brings us hope."
