Filmed over two days in the Lake District, Jack Pirie & Alex Hylands-White's video for Francesco Rossi's Godspeed You expertly charts a woman's sensual journey back to nature.

Which involves delightfully muddy nudity.

Jack Pirie & Alex Hylands-White:

"We loved the evocative nature of 'Godspeed You' and wanted to create something beautiful and atmospheric to compliment the themes of the track. We particularly focused on the idea that we are part of something that is greater than us all.

"We decided on a simple narrative that follows a girl's journey back into nature, watching as she is gradually dwarfed by the dramatic landscapes surrounding her, until she is finally enveloped into the earth - only to rise again as part of the natural landscape. Finally, she is cleansed and returns to the world as a woman reborn."
