PERFORMED BY: Minor Victories
DIRECTED BY: James Lockey, Justin Lockey

Beauty can be found in many different places… for example on the back of a pizzeria, where the cooks’ rhythm of work is tied to Minor Victories’ music. The video set to a shoegaze ballad by the band consisting of members of Slowdive, Mogwai and Editors is minimalistic to a fault. In one continuous black-and-white shot, we observe the daily, routine activities which don’t necessarily have to be boring. They give us a sense of security and allow us to nest ourselves in the reality. The average interior, every now and then attacked by the rays of sun, seems beautiful in a way that’s hard to explain. The atmosphere of joy coming from life’s simple pleasures is complemented by the first line of “Folk Arp”: “can you feel this warmth holding us?”
