Filmawi returns with a surreal journey for Mansur Brown’s new single My Prayer.

With Mansur leading as the main character accompanied by the cast of non-actors, Filmawi creates an alternate reality where the gritty urban setting is visited by mysterious forces, and the inhabitants are transfixed by the glowing mysterious phenomena that have started appearing.

Hypnotic in it’s pacing and startling imagery, Filmawi’s docu-style approach is enhanced with impressive VFX work. A great middle ground between the everyday with an otherworldly atmosphere.

The track lends itself very much to the mesmerizing imagery with soothing guitar, haunting melodies matches the energy of the dreamlike sequences making this one that will resonate with the viewer long after it’s finished.
