Who You Running From?

Lykke Li – I Follow Rivers (Director: Tarik Saleh) from Lykke Li on Vimeo.

Lykke Li’s new video for “I Follow Rivers” is out. The video is directed by Tarik Saleh, and stars Lykke Li and Swedish Lebanese actor Fares Fares.  Lykke Li “follows” Fares through the beautiful and frosty Gotland island in Sweden.  The storyline is inspired by Andrei Tarkovsky’s film “The Sacrifice” about a man who offers to God to give up everything he loves to put an end to nuclear war that’s just broken out.  He prays and even sleeps with a witch whom he believes can save his family.  What role does Lykke Li play in the video? Is she the wife he’s trying to save? The witch he’s seeking salvation from?  What do you think the video is about?

There are some beautiful scenic shots in the video.  Watch the story unfold:
