Maud Van Breemen created her 8mm film Pink, in 1977, to contrast the exploitation and slasher films of the time. Her whimsical colour study was in direct opposition to abject trends set by films such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
This music video takes her film as a catalyst for creative interpretations in all mediums. The works have been created by artists and non-artists of all backgrounds, and were displayed at an art gallery in Vancouver as a surprise for Maud and Casey.
Pink stars the young Casey Van Breemen, Maud’s husband. Their son is Edo Van Breemen, vocalist and keyboardist of Brasstronaut.

Revealing all of this artwork – inspired by Maud’s original film from the 70s – to the entire Van Breemen family was the best part of the whole project. They entrusted us with a funny old family heirloom, and now it’s been reimagined and reinterpreted so many times over.
