JAKARTA – December – This video is about a circle of life that goes backwards, lost soul trapped in life and finding freedom in death.
Stars and Rabbit, an independent duo hailing from Yogyakarta released their debut studio album “Constellation’ last May, and recently released the music video ‘The House’. This video was directed by Bona Palma, in collaboration with senior D.O.P Arief Pribadi, the video contains the element of Manichaeism and utilizes the colour black and white in almost its entirety. This video expresses its story through a lot of figurative language, such as Adi’s role as a frustrated boy living in a family full of conflict. On the other hand, Elda is symbolized as a lost soul trapped in life.
“When we no longer feel comfortable being in a place where we supposedly have to, the one place we call home. It is more or less the major plot line, but Bona made it deeper. He presented a concept which is quite absurd for both of us, but is still acceptable for the song.” said Elda. “I think this video is really absurd, because the people worked without limitations, so we’re free to explore, to do it how we like it to be, no need to do this and that, to go with what others want whatsoever.” Adi ended. Go behind the scenes with Stars and Rabbit on the set of their music video ‘The House’ in the video below.
