CHILD BRIDE - COCOROSIE

Here is the latest music video I directed, edited and produced for CocoRosie, ‘Child Bride’. This is a fairytale but in reality, every year an estimated 14 million girls are married before they turn 18. Robbed of their childhood, denied their rights to health, education and security.
