MA'AGALIM

by URI LOTAN

The childlike simplicity of this music video for Jane Bordeaux’s track “Ma’agalim” invites viewers into a rotating world of an old penny arcade. Simple in layout, elegant in execution, and radiating gentle symbolism, this video, directed by Uri Lotan, explores the concept of cycles. “Nights turn into days; days turn into years.” These are the opening lyrics translated from Hebrew into English. Uri supports this theme of rotation, routine, and lifecycles with a sweet animation that follows a wooden doll as she moves through a busy, beautiful world all around her.
