:::watch::: short films by khalil joseph

yesterday i saw that the good folks at frolab were showing the first of three short films by khalil joseph surrounding the singer seu jorge. in this segment, entitled "the model", we seem to walk with seu through his day which includes rehearsing, chilling with friends/family and thinking about a love interest (introduced in the final seconds of the film). this pieces is incredibly well shot, which is what is to be expected of khalil joseph's work. you may be familiar with his work from the sabazz palaces "belhaven meridian" video based on the films of charles burnett. what khalil does with black and white is magical. the moments feel so warm that you actually believe that they are saturated with color. and let's not even talk about how beautiful seu jorge's voice is. bonkers! i look forward to seeing and hearing more from the both of them as well as the subsequent installments of this series. enjoy this video and some other works by khalil joseph.
