VIDEO: Grandtheft ft. Lowell 'Quit This City'

Grandtheft's song 'Quit This City' with Lowell is already an emotional one.  This video directed by John Poliquin makes this such a heavy experience, by including a powerful story of a terrifying reality of our world.  The video is more a short film than anything else, the song and story fit perfectly each lends power to the other...

Director John Poliquin:

"Shot across two nights in Barcelona with a primarily Spanish cast and crew, these scenes are a combination of conventional filmmaking and on-the-wall documentary observations. Many of the scenes were filmed in the rowdy nightlife district where the camera had to be concealed at points for safety. The scenes where the girls are working the corner was photographed on a long lens from across the street, which led to the actresses being approached by both police and men looking to hire sex workers. Some of the men who approached the actresses were disrespectful and harassing, which unfortunately mirrored the malicious spirit of the final man in the film."

Get 'Quit This City' on iTunes.
