With an undeniable quirkiness and dark humor, French artist Pi Ja Ma captures the loneliness and depression we can experience surrounded by loved ones in “Family.” Directed by Florent W. Dubois, we see Pi Ja ma shuffling through her own emotions of isolation as she is surrounded by the bright yet bluesy atmosphere of the holidays. Who hasn’t felt this way before?
“Pauline wanted a video about Christmas. We talked a lot about it. I got this idea of a movie set between a diorama made of papier mâché and Broadway theatre sets that would represent the interior of a snow globe, filled with zany characters from childhood cartoons.” explained Dubois.
“Family” is from Pi Ja Ma’s debut album Nice To Meet U, which will be out on January 18. The gal has shows coming up:
12/14 – K’verne (Breteuil, France)
2/5 – La Maroquinerie (Paris, France)
4/19 – Theatre De Jouy (Jouy-le-moutier, France)
