A Haunting Fashion Film for ‘Weeping Song II’ by Original Swimming Party

 

Though the alternative fashion film that Bevan Cullinan directed for Original Swimming Party’s track ‘Weeping Song II’ is incredibly beautiful, watching it leaves a lingering sense of unease.

 

The short film was shot at an old public swimming pool in Zoo Lake, Johannesburg in the heart of winter. The narrative is a surreal journey, a thematic study alluding to the fragmented memories of a South African pool that has seen a lot in its lifetime. The diverse cast is made up of people of all ages, clothed in vintage pieces (primarily sourced from Vegas and Los Angeles) which heighten the already dreamlike atmosphere.
