David Knight - 6th Dec 2013

Josh Cole has done it again. His first video since winning an MVA for his awesome Manila-set video for Rudimental's Not Giving In, for the Chase & Status's Alive ft. Jacob Banks, is another compelling tale of young lives engaged in a daily dangerous struggle for survival in a far-flung community.

In this case, Josh and his crew travelled to the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Montana to tell the story a young man's path back to his Native American roots, via tragedy. Like the Not Giving In video and other examples of his work, Josh Cole takes you into a very harsh world, shows bad things happening - and why - but it also reaches for the stars. Superb.
