In Fall 2016, Jilann connected with French company, Paris Sharing, and the founder Carsten Sprotte was immediately inspired to get behind her music. She began to curate their blog site Paris La La and they then combined forces to create this video as a sort of commemoration for the anniversary of the attacks in Paris. And also, as a general call to SYMPATHY for the world.
The video was beautifully directed by Calvin Walker. And the actor featured is Olivier Cosmann, a french singer/songwriter living in Paris.
