Fresh off the internet press, we bring you this new short film for MIKA’s, “The Origin of Love,” the title track from his forthcoming album due out on Universal Republic on October 16. Mika explains that “this latest short film is a collaboration with the Chilean director Cristián Jiménez. After seeing his film Bonsai, this seemed like an exciting match. I wanted to take the kaleidoscopic dreaminess of the song and pair it up with Cristián’s more realistic, surreal and moving imagery. When making these films, I give complete freedom to the director we are collaborating with, in a way that is never possible with a music video. This short film was made in Santiago with Cristián’s close team and friends, and with a lot of love.” This video could pull on the heart strings of even the toughest New Yorkers.
