A little over two weeks is left before the singing contest Eurovision 2015 kick starts in Vienna on May 19th. The Georgian contestant Nina Sublatti’s video for her song Warrior has hit more than 1,000,000 views this week, which is a notable benchmark for the singer.
The video for the single written by Sublatti was directed by the Georgian director and founder of BigCAKE studio, David Gogokhia. The shooting of the video took place in February in the pavilion of the Georgia Public Broadcaster (GPB) and, apart from Nina Sublatti features renown young Georgian models Nina Potskishvili and Mariam Sanogo.
The song has empowering lyrics, such as “Fighter/ Oximated/ World gonna get up and see/ I’m a warrior/Isolated/World gonna listen to me.” The clip has correspondingly empowering images of female warriors of different ethnicities, with tender Georgian Samaya dancers floating in-between. Close-up shots of husky dogs, reptiles and raptors contribute to the primal and raw style of the video. Nina recognizes the female-empowerment message that her song and its video carry:
If we look at the history of Georgian women, we see that have always been important figures. They simply sought to be good women, good mothers, and good teachers. The Georgian woman has to be able to control her temper and raise her child as warrior.
The singer said in an interview with the Eurovision blog portal Wiwibloggs.com.
Meanwhile, the count for the video views continues as Nina Sublatti is preparing to represent Georgia at the 60th anniversary of one of world’s longest running song contests on May 19th.
