I made wine from the lilac tree

Dr. Martens is celebrating their 50th anniversary. They asked 10 artists to record their version of a cult classic track that represents the spirit of the people who’ve worn DM’s over the past 50 years.

One of the songs selected was The Cinematic Orchestra’s rendition of the classic, “Lilac Wine,” made popular in the early 90s by Jeff Buckley.

Blind was asked to direct the video, which would not include talent, but was given no other creative parameters. Inspired by Spencerian Calligraphy this stunning video is the result.
