mavi / willpower
Director: Sean Breitkreutz
Synopsis: “Willpower” was the first video collaboration with Charlotte abstract rap legend Omavi Minder. We follow Mavi as he recollects memories across the dust of a metaphorical home, caught between the past and future. The paintings provide idealized versions of Mavi, rapping back to him as he dissects who he is and what needs to happen to move forward.
