We’re so stoked on this… !!! Our very own Ishtar Bäcklund joined forces with super talented photographer and film-maker Maceo Frost to shoot a short film with Swedish rock band Tussilago‘s song ‘Watlz’ as the soundtrack in some of the most epic roads our eyes have seen so far. Ishti you’re amazing and your words are pure inspiration, Maceo you’re an artist and we can’t wait to work with you, Tussilago you rock and Norway you’re out of this world! Just.. WOWWW!
Stockholm based Maceo Frost (1990) spends his time directing short movies and documentaries. He comes from a family of artists, skaters, dancers and musicians which shows through the different layers of art culture and rhythm in his work.
In this short film ” Ishtar X Tussilago” Maceo explores the magic that cultivates from following your dreams.
“I make film because I want to inspire people to become a little bit more naive, Close their eyes to everything that stands in their way and dare to go for their vision. In the end, film to me is a reminder to never stop living life to the fullest.
World traveler Ishtar Bäcklund (1991) has since the age of 19 lived a nomadic life traveling the world with her skate board. She has found a way to express her curiosity towards life through her skate and art. “Following my passion has always been the truths way in life”.
“You should do what you believe in. Just follow that feeling. Everything else is a lie.”.- Ishtar
