DOLMAN – ‘On Stoney Ground’ Music Video

Last year we were proud to screen the music video for Bristol based band DOLMAN's single 'On Stoney Ground' directed by Tia Salisbury. Set in 1913, the video follows a group of young lads playing rugby at Clifton Rugby Football Club and ends with a harrowing reflection on the reality of WWI.

If you missed it, then here it is again.

Henry Scholfield won the Music Video award at our 2014 festival with his video for Stromae’s single ‘Tous Les Mêmes.’ In this vibrant video we see the lines between gender blurred as Stromae shows off his male and female side.
