Khartoum 'Benny' by Oscar Dunbar
Oscar Dunbar's video for West London indie band Khartoum is the story of Benny and Alice - two big characters who fall hard for each other. Sparks fly big time - but can it last?
Inspired by Bonnie & Clyde - which is referenced in the song - and Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Dunbar builds his passionate romance between two charismatic women and then starts to subvert the dream with an increasingly complicated narrative structure, in the manner of early Tarantino.
The couple start commenting separately to an unseen interrogator about their relationship, and their accounts begin to diverge. But we're always drawn back to the pair's essential glamour, captured by Dunbar and DoP Richard Bell's rich cinematography.
"I was very lucky to work with the most wonderful actors in Danni Spooner and Zinzi Caine," says Dunbar. "I wanted to modernise the old formula for a film based around a couple by working with actors from the under-represented LGBTQ+ and Black community.
"My long-term collaborator Richard Bell was the cinematographer and this project has been a labour of love for us both. We hope you enjoy."
