The Long Goodbye

Niina Lehtonen Braun

JOKAklubi's video work is inspired by the instrumental piece The Long Goodbye by Karl Jonas Winqvist & Blood Music. The video and the soundtrack share the same intense feeling of a never-ending journey and changing landscapes. Three figures in blue search for ingredients and materials from all the possible and impossible places of the magical world. Slowly the visually strong images turn into a documentation of a street performance where the big efforts are turned into a small gesture.
