One Thousand Tears of a Tarantula – Official Music Video

Sometimes, you just have to let the music guide you.

It is my great pleasure to share the new music video, directed by yours truly, for Cambodian Rock band Dengue Fever’s timeless track, “One Thousand Tears of a Tarantula”.  The track premiered in Clash magazine and is now readily available on YouTube.

The song tells the story of famed Cambodian singer Huoy Meas, who was captured and tortured by the Khmer Rouge, allegedly forced to strip and walk in circles until she died, all the while singing.

Creating a video for this track was, in all honesty, a little daunting given the somber nature of the story and the length of the song (a whopping 6 minutes and 41 seconds).  I kept coming back to the rhythm of the music: hypnotic, seductive, dizzying, and subtly nightmarish.  That is what I set out to capture.

I hope you enjoy what you see.
