Watch 'Divino Afflante Spiritu' (Official Video) below!
"It was conceived at a very difficult moment when we had lost our very dear dog Joca, who had always been with us, since the beginning of Labirinto. This video is dedicated to him. It's a myriad of emotions that flood over us every time we play the song. We tried to convey all these feelings in the video in a more surrealistic way. We shared the concept and ideas we had with clip director André Schutz and he was able to synthesize everything in a dark but very beautiful way, full of metaphors." says Labirinto's guitarist Erick Cruxen.
According to Schutz: "Adding images to instrumental music is a trap. You have to be very careful so that the plot doesn't steal the music's lead role. That's why we chose to create a visual atmosphere without a very clear narrative, but in which the conceptual elements would look more evident. We tried to build a space that would be located between the spiritual and mundane worlds and that's where the characters of the video gravitate.“
The allegories and plot of the video also criticize dualistic notions of sacred and profane, good and evil, body and spirit, pointing to something more complex and profound.
