Pete Riski Directs a Tense Short Film for Angèle David-Guillou’s “V. for Visconti”
'En Mouvement' is out this week via Village Green.
En Mouvement is the second album out under Angèle’s given name, following on from 2013’s Kourouma and her earlier singer-songwriting work as Klima and with electronic art-rock band Piano Magic. Musically, Angèle explores the interaction between rhythm, melody, structure, and emotion via hypnotic piano lines, saxophone, woodwind, strings, and searing vocals.
Ahead of the release of En Mouvement, Angèle has shared a tense and haunting short film for album cut “V. for Visconti,” directed by award-winning Finnish director Pete Riski, who said of the project:
“In late 2016 when I heard Angèle’s track “V for Visconti” for the first time, it immediately created a picture of a mother protecting her child, running away from something very dark. I wanted to keep the story as simple as possible and focus on the relationship between the mother and child. That pure love that she feels. Of course, the casting is one of the key elements in a story like this. We went through several options and soon discovered Milla who seemed perfect in every way for the part. On the shoot, she got very deep into character and delivered a truly amazing performance.’
