Video: The Knife - Full Of Fire

  • Posted 69 months Ago

Swedish duo The Knife have revealed the official video for "Full of Fire" - the lead track from their upcoming album Shaking The Habitual. Directed by Stockholm-based artist Marit Östberg, the nine-minute-long short focusses on images of queer bodies and sexualities and sees her work in a wider context of feminist fights and histories. Speaking about the short, Östberg said:

"The film Full of Fire started to grow as an embryo in the song's lines 'Who looks after my story.' Who takes care of our stories when the big history, written by straight rich white men, erase the complexity of human´s lives, desires and conditions? The film Full of Fire consists of a network of fates, fears, cravings, longings, losses, and promises. Fates that at first sight seem isolated from each other, but if we pay attention, we can see that everything essentially moves into each other. Our lives are intertwined and our eyes on each other, our sounds and smells, mean something. Our actions create reality, we create each other. We are never faceless, not even in the most grey anonymous streets of the city. We will never stop being responsible, being extensions, of one another. We will never stop longing for each other, and for something else."
