MINUIT – STORIES FOR BOYS (THE OCCUPY EDIT)
NEW SINGLE (FREE DOWNLOAD) & VIDEO
With the one-year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street on our doorstep (Sept 17), New Zealand band Minuit have teamed up with New York photojournalist Nina Berman to make an inspiringly apt cross-global music video with their latest single ‘Stories for Boys’. The track is also available as a free download.
Berman, a veteran photographer and associate professor at Columbia University School of Journalism, is no stranger to being amidst chaotic situations with her camera, and her award winning images capture the expressions, purpose and character in people.
Minuit says that’s what drew them to her work and is also the essence of the Occupy movement.
“Here in New Zealand, Maori have a saying: ‘What is the most important thing? It is people, it is people, it is people.’ Nina’s photos over that ominous beat are spine-chilling.”
But for Minuit the video is not only about Occupy: “It’s for the watchdogs, the whistleblowers, the non-violent resisters who fight for fairplay and hustle to keep their communities honest. That is not an easy stroll through the tulips. Hug an activist today!”
Feel free to post, share, tweet and shout about the clip.
