Online PR News – 02-August-2013 – London, England – London, England, August 02, 2013 -- The Music video for the song Smile by hip-hop artist Zar has just been launched. The video directed by David Garcia is set in a world of warzone where people have to fight to survive on a daily basis.
The story has a special meaning the director explains:
“I wanted to create a world that reflects what the artist has gone through in the last year and what the song is about. Mainly, the tragic murder of Zar's brother Michael and the death of his best friend, Joel, soon after. In the song Zar reflects about the meaning of these and talks directly to God about his attitude towards life from that point on.
"The young kid in the video is played by Zar's youngest brother in real life, Francis. As the song's meaning is so close to the rapper, I strongly felt that having this element of realism during the filming would make the overall product a more touching and meaningful one to Zar and to audiences.
"At the same time I didn't want to just recreate the events narrated in the song literally, but instead come up with a different story that would still complement the lyrics and at the same time acknowledge other issues that are relevant in today's news; things like riots taking place all over the world or the case of Trayvon Martin who the artist felt closely connected to due to the similarity with his brother's case."
