Synopsis: 
‘Reason’ is a rebel call for climate action. Structured through character driven vignettes, this story will unfold as we peel back the layers and complexities of global citizens, environmental ferocity and the politics of justice. ‘Reason’ is a visual representation of the current global awakening. Using a photographic lens to capture moments, this music video aims to emulate photojournalism in the essence of creating snapshots of emotional depth; an unborn child, a lightning strike, a riot zone. A picture can say a thousand words.
