BULLETT Exclusive: Watch Wilhja’s Film, ‘Enlightenment,’ Starring Klitorika Browne and Melanie Gaydos

+

Driven to explore the vast possibilities of gender, fashion and enlightenment, Brooklyn-based director duo Anthony&Alex created a visual representation of spiritual growth, featuring queer entertainer Klitorika Browne and model Melanie Gaydos in clothes by Swedish designer Carolina Rönnberg of Wilhja. The alluring clip, fittingly titled, “Enlightenment,” is set to the soothing sounds of New Zealand musician Liam Finn, providing the perfect accompaniment to Anthony&Alex’s ethereal video treatment.

“As artists, we were going through a monumental shift in our thought process about what we really wanted to say with our work,” Anthony&Alex said. “This project is a direct result of that. We felt the need to strip away all the unnecessary [negativity] in our lives and self-made pressures we feel everyday while working in such an intense industry.”
