Slipknot have revealed Pollution, a twenty-minute short film which was directed by the band’s own M. Shawn Crahan (Clown).
The film centres around the band’s video for Nero Forte, which is taken from their latest album We Are Not Your Kind.
“I set out to make a short film that makes you question your own existence, here in this reality,” Crahan explains. “When you lay down in your bed, next to the one you love, do you ever ask yourself – is it possible that this person could slit my throat while I’m sleeping? Enjoy. Pollution is everywhere.”
We Are Not Your Kind is out now, available to purchase HERE.
