Video FHD, color, sound.

3 minutes 45 seconds

“Don´t believe in me” reflects the newer and younger generations who don´t know what trends to follow. They dress in former urban tribe styles, including punk, rock, grunge, or generation x. However, they don’t only imitate the dress code, but also the antisocial and withdrawn attitude. We find these people in a bar, a space where the ritual of drinking and talking with people who share a similar ideology. This work ponders our present society, illustrating a theatrical decadence that transports us to places where the fight for a brighter future is nowhere to be found. These young characters imitate rock-like attitudes and gestures but lack desire and enthusiasm.
