Bulbes

The illustration to the Jewish, traditional song 'Bulbes' sang by Polish singer Justyna Steczkowska was realised in a quiet alley in the busy Chinatown neighbourhood of New York. The video was filmed with an old camera using 16 mm film tape, which gave it that old-fashioned film flavour. The artistic design of the video was inspired by unique movies from Armenian director Sergey Paradzhanov. This funny song about eating potatos during tough times is also illustrated with animated choreography of dancing potatos and cutlery. A pretty girl dressed in beautiful, tulle dress enjoys eating potatos as if they were the sweetest chocolate.
