A Stranger Came to Town

Director: Thomas Vroege
Based on interviews with four inhabitants of Aleppo, this poetic documentary shows the revolution and war in Syria, too, are not simply a matter of good against evil.
In this music video, rap artist Stepherd is in his car, parked in front of the house of a girl he has a friends-with-benefits liaison with. She has a steady relationship with someone else. Images from the bedroom alternate with the brooding Stepherd, who is not happy. The sex may be great, but he would rather be ‘the one’ for the girl. The video is the first part of a triptych, each episode of which was written and directed by Steven Elbers.
