Fleur & Manu: The Directors Behind M83's Music Video Trilogy

More

About the Video

Having worked with the likes of Tricky, Sebastien Tellier, and Bag Raiders, directorial duo Fleur & Manu have established themselves as experts when it comes to creative visuals to complement music.

Their cinematic work on a trilogy of videos for M83 demonstrates the team's boundless imagination, weaving an epic tale that increases in scope and intensity with each installment. Beginning with "Midnight City," we meet a group of children with special telekinetic powers imprisoned in an asylum from which they escape and, for a few fleeting moments, live like regular kids. That is, until they discover they are being pursued by the faceless authorities, who no doubt aim to place the kids back in captivity, in "Reunion." In the final episode "Wait," created with support from The Creators Project, we enter an entirely new level of epic.
