Spoek Mathambo: Control

A music video for South African artist Spoek Mathambo, a cover of the Joy Division classic “She’s Lost Control”, directed and shot by Pieter Hugo and Michael Cleary.

[Control] explores the world of township cults, street preaches and teen gangs and was shot on location in a squatted train boarding house in Langa, Cape Town. The cast is mainly made up of the neighborhood kids who run their own dance troop, Happy Feet.

As bizarre as it is incredibly beautiful. (via cliptip)
