Shot in the aesthetics of the silent film era, this animated music video for the U.S. band “His Name Is Alive” weaves many icons of surrealism into a dark psychological, very physical incident. While Alice is trying to escape from the physical world, the rabbit nibbles at the skin wings of the anatomical angel and defends an egg in a bird’s cage against the devil.
