DEROSNEC - The Art of War

Bullying isn't just something that happens in school. Bullying happens every day, everywhere, in all kinds of situations, to all kinds of people. Because bullying happens in all kinds of contexts, I want to show all kinds of people who have been bullied. We see them singing along with my song defiantly in the face of their oppressors. They get beaten down, but they stand back up. They are intercut with images of my confident self, as well as images of my own inner battle—manifested in a boxing match between my actual self and my negative self. Fingers and hands overwhelm the shadow figure, until finally we all break out of the cycle and dance together in confidence to turn that negative energy into something beautiful.
