Yeah Yeah Yeahs - 'Wolf'

"Smuggler" director Allie Avital’s latest music video ‘Wolf’ for Yeah Yeah Yeah's captures a woman trapped in a monotonous relationship. The sterility of her protagonist's home life to the deep and colorful wilderness emphasizes the need to reconnect with the natural world; putting her in a trance. The spatial awareness and cinematography bring this piece to life as we see the woman weaving effortlessly through heavy brush and forest, seemingly unbothered by the rough terrain. She is free and hungry. The striking cinematic style creates a powerful film about female agency and giving into our natural desires.
