Legacy

A Film by Bryn Chainey

Synopsis

Directed by Bryn Chainey, the video for “Legacy” chronicles the loss of a beloved pet mouse, and a young girl’s fascination for death and eclectic funerals. Set against the lush, horn infused melodies of the four minute (and some spare change) track, the video explores cultural ceremonies ranging from a customary Japanese funeral to a space burial.” – Derek Staples, Cluster 1
