Isaiah talks ‘Pleader’ at One Point Four

Check out this in comprehensive interview with Isaiah Seret about his recent film for alt-J:




2017-11-29 07:23:27
Isaiah Seret – alt-J “Pleader” This is not your regular music video – it’s a six-minute, miniature epic inspired by “Pleader,” the closing cut on alt-J‘s album Relaxer.

The song itself is inspired by Richard Llewelyn’s book How Green Was My Valley, a story set in 19th century Wales in a small mining town, in part about a family that hopes its youngest son will find a better life. The song by alt-J is grand, too, recorded in a cathedral with an organ, a boys choir (alt-J keyboardist Gus Unger-Hamilton was a member of this choir as a child) and the London Metropolitan Orchestra.

alt-J say “When we set out to make a video for ‘Pleader’, we sent the following one-line brief to director, Isaiah Seret: ‘A Welsh mining love story; A tidal wave of earth.’ What Isaiah came back with was an epic short-film inspired both by the song’s source material and Tarkovsky’s The Sacrifice. A family must pit their desire to have a child against the knowledge that this would destroy their community. The hypnotic, hymnal quality of the song binds the video throughout, hinting at redemption while destruction takes place.”

Baz Luhrmann – ERDEMxHM “The Secret Life Of Flowers” ERDEMxHM directed by Baz Luhrmann, co-produced by Biscuit Filmworks.
The visionary film maker Baz Luhrmann has created a unique and spectacular cinematic short film exclusively for ERDEM x H&M. “The Secret Life of Flowers” is set in a grand country mansion with a full cast of actors and models. The film will also debut an exclusive new track by Years & Years, “Hypnotised”. Treating the short film like a full movie in itself, it has all of the passion, drama and vivacity that has made Baz one of the world’s greatest living film makers.
“I wanted the film to be like a whole movie. It’s a very modern love story, set in a country house that is full of its own secrets and it’s like a metaphor for our times – it’s harsh out there in the world, but in here, the things that really matter keep growing in an eternal spring,” says Baz Luhrmann.
Baz Luhrmann’s film for ERDEM x H&M is set in a mysterious country mansion where it is “always spring”. The house is like its own private world that is always filled with flowers, influenced by ERDEM’s celebrated floral prints. When young friends come to stay, a magnetic love triangle begins, in the film starring upcoming actors Tom Rhys Harries, Hero Fiennes Tiffin and Ruby Dagnall.
They are joined by acclaimed actress Harriet Walter, as well as super models Saskia de Brauw, Imaan Hammam, Grace Hartzel, Fernando Cabral, Neels Visser and Tony Ward. Throughout, Baz used pieces from the ERDEM x H&M collection to define the characters and propel the narrative, while the new track by Years & Years captures the mood of positivity, friendship and love.
Baz Luhrmann has created some of the best-loved films of our times. He has directed Moulin Rouge!, William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, The Great Gatsby and Strictly Ballroom, and most recently created the TV show The Get Down.
The ERDEM x H&M collection will be available in selected H&M stores, as well as on, from November 2.
