Farhad Ghaderi's impassioned video for Canadian artist Jordan Klassen, nominated at last month's UK Music Video Awards 2019, tells the story of two brothers, where an upcoming sports event becomes the opportunity to strive for something better.  

This fine work by DoP-turned-director Ghaderi, shot in British Columbia and created via the support of the MVP Project - a joint initiative of RBCxMusic and the Prism Prize, administered by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television - features a tremendous performance by Antoine Olivier Pilon as the elder brother, exorcising his own demons by training his the younger for his big race.
