The Mole 17

The song “Mole” tells the story of the relationship of the lyrical hero with his “inner beast”, which offers the owner to shoot all the people “through the navel.” “Inner beast” Mole-the personification of what lives in the character. Its dark side, or light, is unclear and should be. He rummages in character and deeply rooted in it as in the ground. He speaks of vices, whispers in his ear and speaks to his master. The story of their relationship is cyclical, at all levels of the hero’s imagination.
Directed by Dmitry Maseykin (Russia)
