‘Anthemic and Melancholy:’ Developing Arcade Fire’s Dystopian Short Film

"Ultimately we wanted to create a magical world but one which had an undercurrent to it."

Drectors Alex Mavor and Ed Kaye of The Sacred Egg discuss their six-minute short film for Arcade Fire’s “Everything Now” with Jenny Brewer: “The song is both anthemic and melancholy.The challenge for us was to create something that captured both these moods.

“Ultimately we wanted to create a magical world but one which had an undercurrent to it. A parallel country that was both familiar and strange. One about corporations and infrastructure and family. We didn’t want to pass a judgement on it though. It’s for the viewer to make sense of any undertones. We simply tried to capture the mood of this alternate land.”
