XXYYXX – DMT

[jwplatform WB1ScYn6-Pqiywodl]

In this Unofficial Music Video for XXYYXX, filmmaker Alexander Christenson pairs an epic journey with the band’s song DMT. In this tale, a warrior, played by actor Bertini Heumegni, washes up on the shore of a deserted island. Faced with the grim possibility of never leaving this isolated prison, the warrior gathers what supplies he can and plans a rather unconventional escape.
In this film, all out of pocket via the filmmaker, Christenson shows a great reverence for the song while creating a truly unique music video all his own. He benefits from a skilled actor in Heumegni, who is able to transition from despair to determination without ever uttering a word. While the world around him is vast, Christenson only spends one or two shots on the vastness of the island. The majority comprises close-ups of the hunter and the fire he constructs by. The ending, equal parts ambiguous and hopeful, is certain to provoke some emotions in the viewer.
