‘Ash Day’ is the second of two videos filmed in Iceland last year for La Blogothéque.
Director Derrick Belcham says of the video: “It is the end of February. The extended darkness is beginning to wear us down, and the weather is a schizophrenic outpatient. On a tip from a local, we take to the streets to watch the children of Reykjavik sing for candy and desserts in full, mystical regalia. It is Ash Day, and Julianna is ready to make the kids work for their treats.”
Belcham also collaborated on the ‘Crystal Lake’ video, which was filmed at Barwick’s release party for Nepenthe at Judson Church in New York.
