These could be your brothers or sisters
A large drawing of children playing by German artist Wayne Horse forms the basis of a new music video for William Kouam Djoko track, We Are Your Brothers and Sisters – but the relatively simple set up contains a chilling reveal...
To the lines "These could be your brothers or sisters / We are your brothers and sisters" the camera pans around Horse's giant circular illustration (depicting youngsters unwrapping presents, sitting in school and so on) while the whole scene is coloured-in by the three children shown at the start of the film.
But after about one and a half minutes, things turn a little sinister.
The two work-in-progress images posted below the film might give away the storyline (or at least the issues that the film was designed to raise awarness of), so for a no-spoiler experience, watch the clip first. The film was made in collaboration with the Jäger Music Program.
