London-based multidisciplinary artist, director and DJ Susu Laroche has released a new short film which was shot in tandem with Mica Levi’s The Collections cover story.

The compact, 90-second visual, entitled behind the scenes, was shot in the Docklands and Canary Wharf areas of London on black and white 16mm film stock. The visual follows south London-based artist and composer Levi as they go about their day: taking calls, crossing bridges and venturing into woodland areas. We also watch on as Levi uses a gleaming knife as a mirror.

The film is soundtracked by Levi, whose 2021 releases include the score to A24 film Zola as well as the 11-track LP Blue Alibi – which they surprise dropped back in January. More recently, Levi linked up with friends and frequent collaborators Tirzah and Coby Sey on the former’s second album Colourgrade.

The Collections, Vol. 3 is a four-cover magazine starring Mica Levi, Joy Orbison, PinkPantheress and Charli XCX. Watch the new film in the player above and read Mica Levi’s cover story here.
