The official music video for Arcade Fire's "Afterlife" came out recently, and it is beautifully done. Written and directed by Emily Kai Bock, it doesn't include any of the band members. Instead, it starts with an uneasy conversation at the dinner table with a father and his two children. From there, it goes into each person's deep desires and longings. It portrays these longings through visually stunning shots with beautiful colors and some black and white shots. The camera movement is very fluid. This video really captures the delicate and captivating sadness of the song. Produced by the Creators Project, the editing enhances the emotionally and touching story through its carefully thought out cuts and overall structure. So take eight minutes and watch this music video. You won't be disappointed.
