“The future is slow coming” by Benjamin Booker
Directed by James Lees
A short film featuring the songs ‘Slow Coming’ & ‘Wicked Waters’ from Benjamin Booker.
NPR – “A kind of mash-up of Selma and Beasts of the Southern Wild, with Booker as an unwilling time traveler recalling both the segregated Deep South and current controversial police actions.”
DIY Mag – “One emotional juggernaut of a video”
Far Out Magazine – “A music video for ‘Slow Coming’ and ‘Wicked Waters’ it deals effectively with both aspects of the short film and music promo genres, being both cinematic and emphatic in delivery. Pulling at heart strings and delivering the sobering message like a slap to the face.”
