Dancing through the streets of Moldova with the indie folk ten-piece from Los Angeles

Berlin-based Israeli director Noaz Deshe — an acclaimed cinematographer known for his award-winning Ryan Gosling-produced feature White Shadow—talks about his video for Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’s track “Wake Up The Sun.”

“Outside Chișinău, the capital of Moldova, you find time stands still — communism and religion are still the backdrop of an identity not yet conquered by the east or the west.

“It seems like any minute chain stores will spring up, but for now it is undefined by the powers that be. I was struck by the beauty of an identity not yet overtaken by what has become all - too familiar—the song struck that chord with me."
