Fine
Directed by: Emma Scotson, Valen-Marie Santos
 
Category: Music Video

Year & Country: 2021, United States

Duration: 4 min
 
Synopsis: Sometimes no is enough without having to explain the story of why. This video embodies and presents as many depictions of “no” as possible. It abandons linear narratives to embrace the abstraction & unpredictability uncovered when exploring the world of a sentiment/feeling. Many iconic “revenge/breakup” music videos starring women, portray these women as unhinged, crazy, and even demonic. It was essential that this NOT be the case in ‘Fine.’ In ‘Fine,’ the women are unchangingly grounded, empowered, and sane as they wreak destruction in order to tell the man who brought trauma/pain upon them “no.” The symbols of this man (his apologetic gifts, the infantilized submissive school-girl-esque image of women he finds ideal, the surrealist box-world he has trapped them in) are the catalysts for the unhinged/creepy/horrific tone of this suffocating-box world, not the women.

Synopsis: An explosive mix of styles that is both unsettling to the eye and oddly comforting to whomever was born or raised or otherwise scarred by the 90’s and by emotionally loaded encounters with pixelated objects and hearts of the flesh.
