Aussie-raised, L.A. based director Nabil has emerged as one of this gen's finest visual and emotional storytellers. We recently saw his powerful work at Saatchi's New Director's Showcase--the shocking Antony and the Johnsons video for "Cut the World." He returns with another clip for the hip hop/electronica team up of Just Blaze and Baauer, featuring Jay Z. Here, a brave child warrior in rural India rallies a posse of other powerful young ones against his drunken, much older nemesis, leading to some awesome, super raw fight scenes.
According to MTV.com, the "short film," as it's being billed, may be just an appetizer to something bigger.
