Elisa Ambrogio – “Arkansas” Video

Magik Markers’ Elisa Ambrogio released her astounding debut solo album, The Immoralist, last summer on Drag City, an understated collection of personal songs that echo into infinity, slipping into empty spaces of unconsciousness and waking them. Much of The Immoralist centers on themes of the supernatural and the occult, so its fitting that Ambrogio enlisted Amy E. Scott to direct the video for “Arkansas.” Scott is the documentarian behind Once I Was: The Hal Ashby Story, a film about the director of Harold And Maude, and Scott’s obsession with cult-film directors infiltrated her collaboration with Ambrogio as well. The director of Back Door To Hell and Two Lane Blacktop, Monte Hellman, stars opposite Ambrogio in the video for “Arkansas.” As the two play a game of chess in an idyllic California country house on the water, their actions are interspersed with dream-like imagery.
