PERFORMED BY: Soniamiki
DIRECTED BY: Soniamiki, Maciej Szafnicki
Soniamiki pays homage to her idol, Federico Fellini, by turning the music video into a short film about the role of fantasy in our lives. For this task she moves to the stage, where the iconic characters from the Italian maestro’s film appear. Living by the words “I live better when I use fantasy”, the singer (and a trained animator) takes up camp props, such as a giant lollipop, and a clear, optimistic message with just a hint of irony. The whole thing is a dreamlike journey to the land of childish ideals which can’t be quite shaken off when becoming an adult. Posed with the question of whether true love exists, Soniamiki and Maciej Szafnicki answer “yes” without any doubt. After all, it is great fun.
