New video for “Your Past Life as a Blast” on IFC

There’s a brand new video for “Your Past Life as a Blast” from director Isaac Ravishankara available today on IFC’s website. The new flick attempts to answer the question, “How do you capture a memory?” Gorgeously shot in upstate New York, the video follows a boy and a girl on an adventure to a secret lake where they jump into the water and swim out as far as they can.

Ravishankara says the hardest part of the shoot “were all of the water scenes. We spent hours in the lake and it was awfully cold. By the end of the day, Ben and Margaret and I were so cold, our shivers had turned to full-on uncontrollable shaking, which Kevin (Haden, DP) thankfully captured. That last shot in the video is my favorite shot I have in anything I’ve ever made.”

Okkervil River will be on tour through the end of November in Europe. You can see a full list of dates here.
