Villagers have a new video for ‘Cecelia & Her Selfhood’. A long-standing live favourite at Villagers’ live shows, ‘Cecelia’ has finally been committed to tape. Indeed, more than a simple music video, it slowly took the shape of a short film by animator extraordinaire, Adrien Merigeau. Adrien and Conor began the filmmaking process by discussing the song in all of its aspects. Then Adrien let loose. The results are spellbinding.
Film Synopsis: The film charts the development of a young man as he navigates his way through an impressionistic landscape in search of an elusive monster which is intent on destroying his childhood home. Lost and confused for the most part, he nonetheless uncovers the beast; a creature whose origins are both terrifying and liberating.

Conor was also awarded a prestigious Ivor Novello for ‘Best Song Musically and Lyrically’ for Becoming a Jackal .
