Tom Hingston directs the music video for David Bowie's "I'd Rather Be High," which paints an anti-war message with the use of archival footage.

Says Hingston to Creative Review, "We wanted it to feel like a found relic, discovered, as if from another time. In early conversations, Mr Bowie and I discussed exploring archival footage that brought to life another side of war - footage that featured soldiers celebrating; young servicemen and women, in moments of jubilation and euphoria - drinking, dancing and partying…these moments of total euphoria, juxtaposed with extreme violence, serve as a powerful reminder of the futility of war."
