IN HER ROOM, A YOUNG WOMAN DRESSES AND PUTS ON HER MAKE-UP, COMPLETELY VULNERABLE TO THE CAMERA.
Directed by CARAZ, this visual essay marries the innate talent of the director in all fashion-related projects. Put on 8mm and 16 mm film by Alexandre Nour, the entire piece was motivated by a very unique concept from the musician:
"I asked myself: what do I want to say from one woman to another, today? My inner voice told me that what I want to hear, is that I am allowed to be imperfect.
For the music video for Ta Fille, I wanted to show a woman who, like me, doesn’t generate unanimity. A woman pierced by the dichotomies of light and shadow, softness and fury, goodwill and jealousy. Joanie Perron (known for appearing in Quebec’s most famous reality show "Occupation Double") was perfect for this role. She is a woman that I have again and again judged and reprieved. I later understood her better, and loved her for giving birth to multiple questions within me and around me. She is woman who, in the end, isn’t so unlike me me I think."
