Sisters - Summer Will Never End

A girl left with memories that are impossible to hold on to

The music video for Syostry (Sisters) was meant to be an obituary for an ended summer fling. But hearing this song over and over again, the director Polina Varfolomeeva couldn’t help but feel melancholic about certain events in her own life.The feelings of a past that is never coming back were transferred to a script that can be read many ways. Some will see a story of a doomed relationship where one is always drawn from another, some will focus on the physics of vanishing memories. Most of the team were female and the video turned out very soft and atmospheric, seasoned by long exposure shots, with light movement, match-cuts and Gondry-inspired  crafted transitions.

Director Polina Varfolomeeva says: “After my husband left the country at risk of being drafted I felt extremely lonely and longing for our past. I was driving past places where we went together and realized he may never come back and we need to decide where to live and how to be together again”.
