Viktoria Modesta ‘Born Risky’ for Channel 4

DIRECTOR SAAM FARAHMAND, ROGUE FILMS

Rogue Films came to Mass Movement with a unique project for artist VIKTORIA MODESTA – to hone her performance skills for the Born Risky project for Channel 4 and her new music video directed by Saam Farahmand.


Viktoria’s life story is simply quite remarkable. As Saam Farahmand puts it….”What if by being frivolous with our flesh, embracing technology and exploiting the individuating power of being physically unique makes someone a stronger, more potent, more memorable pop star than they could ever be otherwise?

What if as an amputee you simply don’t care about the things you’re expected to care about, your beliefs are purely in music, fashion, art, sex and performance, and when the world realises you exist they never look at amputeeism the same way ever again?”

A TRIUMPHANT LIFE STORY BROUGHT TO LIFE

Working closely with the creative and choreographic team and the talented dancers from Mass Movement VIKTORIA MODESTA’s Born Risky and her Music Video was viewed over 7 million times on YOU TUBE. It was undoubtedly a triumph and combined the hugely important symbolic narrative and deliberate stylistic indulgence which is exactly what the best pop identities (and Viktoria’s life story) are all about.
