This debut music video for Kriill is a slow strange exploration of the weirdness and unease of teenage doldrums in a fantastic, ever-expanding city.
The two boys journey through their city, barely moving for most of the video, exchanging cigarettes and the occasional glance. Then they swing from cranes held up over a giant city, a tree the size of a skyscraper in the background. It’s this mix of a mundane city and an overgrown futurism that makes Hurt People Hurt People fascinating and uneasy.
While director Félicien Colmet Daâge of Passion Pictures was backed up by a team of extremely talented animators and the production company, Les Films de Morphee, he took the reins on this piece in an extremely hands-on exploration. In addition to directing, he was also responsible for storyboarding, laying out both characters and backgrounds and art direction, resulting in a focused meditation on teenage malaise.
