JAY-Z – “Marcy me”

The NYPD are watching down from a helicopter and the habitants of a NYC borough are looking back in JAY-Z’s “Marcy me”. We get to see from the police perspective but also pictures from the ground with special focus on a young boy. What’s in the mind of the police versus the people we can only guess. But of course it raises questions of suspicion, surveillance and crime-fighting. A technical advanced video that opens your eyes and stays in your head. Made by the Safdie Brothers (Josh Safdie and Benny Safdie) and production company The Directors Bureau.
