A fusion of concert and fiction that together constitutes a “never before seen” hybrid of music video/live-concert/fiction film. A visual, poetic and entertaining piece of art – with big commercial appeal
The music videos for Heisann Montebello introduced us to two characters: The Monkey (Chirag) and the Mouth (Magdi). Together the two characters exasperate the Norwegian and International societies. They challenge freedom of speech and poke fun at both themselves and politicians as they put focus on the important issues society faces today. Reflecting on and exposing Europe anno 2017.
The Monkey and the Mouth are thrown into jail for their everlasting criticism of Norwegian society. The state believes that their assignment is entertainment and not political. As they wait for their sentencing, unexpected conflict occurs, and their friendship is tested.
