Biscuit's Isaiah Seret Directs Brooding Music Video for Alt-J's New Track 'Pleader'
Biscuit have released director Isaiah Seret’s latest music video for alt-J for their track ‘Pleader’. Filmed in the Rhonda Valley in South Wales, the film stars Sophie Cookson (Gypsy, Kingsman) and Morgan Watkins (A Little Chaos, Suffragette).

It chronicles life from birth to death, with real birth footage lifted from an experimental film by Stan Brakhage from 1959 and apocalyptic moments fit for a disaster movie interspersed with shots of the glorious Welsh countryside, fitting as the track itself is inspired by Richard Llewlyn’s book How Green Was My Valley?

 
alt- J said:  “When we set out to make a video for ‘Pleader’ Joe sent the following one line brief to director Isaiah Seret: "a Welsh mining love story; a tidal wave of earth." What Isaiah came back with was an epic short film, inspired both by the song's source material and Tarkovsky's The Sacrifice. A family must pit their desire to have a child against the knowledge that this would destroy their community. The hypnotic, hymnal quality of the song binds the video throughout, hinting at redemption while destruction takes place.”
