Music Video: Paolo Nutini “Iron Sky” Directed by Daniel Wolfe

PaoloNutini-IronSky

I don’t know how director Daniel Wolfe does it but his work is consistently flawless. You may recall his video for Chase & Status’ “Blind Love” (see it here) where he essentially made a 90s rave period piece, shot on VHS, that everyone thought was actual footage from the 90s.

This video for Paolo Nutini is set in a dystopian future where everyone gets headaches and smokes something called Aurora. There’s not much in the way of story here, but there’s something so compelling about this extremely bleak portrait.

Watch “Iron Sky” below. Slightly not work-safe, brief nudity.

    It was set in the future? It looks like modern Russia in near the northern Caspian Sea. I thought the video was about drug abuse in an old derelict Soviet settlement that the market no longer supports.

      The video was filmed in Ukraine, near Kiev.
      I think, the video is about drugs and about “natural” drugs such as endorphins etc. They both are just chemical reactions in our body.

  • Powerful video.
