Experiencing Interruptions?

The Mood Kings: Dust and Bone (Music Video)

The main character of the "Dust And Bone" video carries those lyrics on a letter — half of it, anyway. It's been ripped in two, and she stumbles through the forest in search of the rest of the torn page. Once she finds the cabin, it's a sure bet she'll be climbing inside. But what she discovers inside those narrow rooms of the house defies easy description, and her quest to solve the puzzle is not without its own cost. Tony Murnahan is an experienced hand at generating mystery — many of his videos are chronicles of journeys to exotic places — and here, he balances tension, beauty, and indeterminacy to tell the story of lovers divided but not entirely broken.
