Together with co-director Thomas Szacka-Marier, we made the videoclip for the song Flore by Gabriel Rios.
The album and its title song Flore can be seen as Gabriel Rios’ hommage to his father, who filled his youth in Puerto Rico with music. When he made the record, his dad was already very far in the depths of Alzheimer’s disease and never had the chance to truly hear what his son composed. This music video takes this experience as a starting point, exploring the way a father and son keep connecting through all the changes the disease enforces.
