Director Statement

We have been developing the idea for the video for "Bullet" for a very long time, and by listening to the song intensively, we realized that similar images and scenes appear in our heads. So we ended up with the idea of ​​a video set in the winter, in a small village in Vojvodina, with heroes who are not so typical for today's music videos. With further development, we came to various folklore motifs, folk customs, glorification of the cult, sacrifice and the final return of the band's frontman, Sibin. We found additional inspiration in Sergei Paradzhanov's films, Yugoslav Black Wave films, and black-and-white photographs by various authors. That's how we somehow came up with the idea for the video, not so much consciously making a homage, but our biggest compliment would be if we really managed to convey at least a hint of the atmosphere from Yugoslav Black Wave films.
