Sam Fender 'Spit Of You' by Philip Barantini
Sam Fender goes toe-to-toe with iconic actor Stephen Graham in a moving drama for Spit Of You, directed by Philip Barantini.
Barantini is the actor turned director/producer of acclaimed British crime thriller Villain, and recently directed Graham in his new movie Boiling Point, set in the kitchen of a top restaurant. In Spit Of You, the director explores the complicated relationship between a father and son, reflecting the theme of Fender's song, and the result is terrific.
With powerful performances from both Graham and Fender, Barantini gets to grips with the numerous layers that make up a father-son relationship at a certain point in their lives - when the son is now a man himself, and the father is ill-equipped to deal with it.
Graham has appeared in a lot of music videos but it's hard to remember him giving a better performance than this one. But Sam Fender really matches him - and the director has no doubt about his potential as an actor.
"Such an incredible experience, and what a joy working with two absolute powerhouses!" says Barantini. "It was a lot of fun and I'll definitely be casting Sam in one of my projects soon! He’s a natural!"
