Pulse Films director Savannah Setten reunites with the band for 'Arrival' in a high security prison in Ukraine

slenderbodies’ Latest Music Video Features Real Inmates Confronting Incarceration

Hot off the heels of their first collaboration on ‘Belong,’ director Savannah Setten joins forces once again with slenderbodies for another captivating music video.

Filmed within the confines of a high security prison in Ukraine, 'Arrival' features a cast of real inmates confronting their circumstances through creative expression. 'Arrival' offers a rare insight into what life for these men looks like, and explores the mental toll it takes and how they - for all their sins - find way to cope. No actors were used in this film.

Savannah Setten said: "It’s almost impossible to imagine what must go through the human mind when facing ten years or more within the confinement of a prison, away from family, the people you love, freedom. As it was for these young men, developing a mechanism to live and exist in this other world, a creation of their imagination, became an essential part of self preservation; a way to exist whilst waiting on years of time to pass. We hoped to blur the watchers understanding of what was the men’s physical prison reality or in fact lucid figments of each of their imaginations and longing for a different life. There isn’t a definitive answer, what you conclude is up to you."
