Irene Moray and co-director Elena Martin introduce us to some proper Girl Power in their video for Spanish singer Rigoberta Bandini's Perra.

It's a piece that begins with a sense of forboding, as we approach a desolate house in the countryside and hear the sound of a woman crying - but things change as a group of females, including Bandini, emerge from various hiding places, inquisitive about the sound, and then gather to hunt down the source in an upper region of the house.

it may not be immediately apparent, but Rigoberta and her pals are acting as if they're dogs - and the freedom of women is being compared to that of dogs. Perra is therefore a protest anthem for feminism, but as the party move outside, into the sunshine, there is increasing positivity about the women's situation.

The collective strength of the women is celebrated, and an elder woman to the rest of the group, dressed in flowing hair, actually appears to transform into a lovely dog. The comparison to dog is revealed as a route to becoming 'freer'.
