Proper Stranger


Who would ever think of putting skateboarding and ballet in the same video?

Filmmakers Jonayd Cherifi and Etienne Declerck, that’s who. The Frenchies filmed their video, ‘Proper Stranger’, in Paris, on the heels of Cherifi’s first project, ‘Night and the Soul‘. Cherifi realised that skateboarding and classical dance had never been explored together visually, so he set about doing just that. Why, though? “Because these two disciplines, which at first seem totally opposite, actually have a lot in common, be it in terms of movement, space, creation, etc.”

Press play and prepare to be caught off guard in the best possible way.
