TERRAFORM
2017 I 5:05

A documentary-style music video that charters the true story of the hardships and sacrifices that the sulphur miners of Ijen make, by working in one of Earth’s most toxic environments, in order to provide for their family. To tell the story as honest as possible, we casted an actual sulphur miner and his real family. All the smoke, landscape and working conditions in the video are unaltered from reality.

We hope the video connects with its audience in offering a perspective on their own lives and the comforts they enjoy – to realize that in this day and age there are still people who suffers through extreme conditions to put food on the table everyday.
