Alex Ross Perry: music videos

Alex Ross Perry, USA , 74'57’
The Sweet East Alex Ross Perry Masteclass & Secret Screening

Seductive vampires, an imaginative teenager, and a hedonist priest – although the protagonists of music videos directed by Alex Ross Perry come from different worlds, they are equally effective in attracting attention. That is why the American artist enjoys the unwavering trust of the music industry and gets invited to work with dream-pop divas and hard-rock scandalists. This selection of music videos from 2016-23 is a multi-course visual feast and excellent proof of Perry's directorial versatility.
