Synopsis: The piece is an allegory of the myth of the Phoenix, a fragment in the life of three characters that go through a transformation in the far corners of the earth. The process unfolds between two different songs, Flora, that represents chaos, and Caic, that resolves this assumed transformation, this mystic moment.

There, where the earth ends, where seas are frozen, birds fall from the skies and burn as a sign of what is to come, an atmosphere that shows the contradictions between ice and fire, of the beginning and the end, and of light versus darkness, taking us on a sensorial voyage towards a final reflection on how we need to end things to be able to start over.

Filmed in the North of Sweden in the winter of 2020, with endless snow and a frozen sea constantly surrounded by storms, the piece frees itself form the traditional video format and becomes a narrative and sensorial short-film.

Director's Bio

Pablo Maestres began his career as a lauded photographer in the Barcelona music scene. From there he launched himself into crafting music videos that earned resounding praise at music and cinema festivals across the globe.

Turning his talents to commercials, Pablo was quickly recognized for his near-obsessive attention to detail, every frame containing such intricate composition that every single viewing brings something different from the last.

His surreal storytelling style combined with gorgeous visuals and spontaneous moments of magical realism have set him apart as an endlessly talented and imaginative artist. Pablo’s work has been recognized at SXSW, D&DA, YDA in Cannes, Ciclope, and UKMVA, where he won Best Pop Video UK in 2019, and with many more accolades and awards well on the way. He currently lives in Barcelona.
