Kaada - Farewell (Norway, 5:00)
Directed by: Christian Holm Glad
Written by: Christian Holm Glad
Cast: Cherish Waters, Susanne Karin Moe, Linn Gjerstad, Patrice Demonier, John-Erik Kaada
"Farewell” is an emotional and visually impressive mosaic of personal stories from across the world that are masterfully connected to the piano driven melancholy of the track. As people, we are scared to make changes. We are afraid of being alone. We are afraid of not making money, so we do the same routines every day. We are risk adverse, but when you dare to do something else, it is often the best decision in life,” director Christian Holm-Glad says of the video.
