A video for “Sugar Foot” by Battles. The story is set in 2020, when human activities all over the world were restricted due to Covid-19. The main theme, “Cosmic Robot Festival,” was created to provide some relief for festivals and events that were regretfully canceled. This festival gets its form from matsuri, traditional Japanese festivals, whose history stretches back about 400 years. Although matsuri vary in style from place to place, they all share one common element: a wish for peace. With the same intention as the robot festival, this video itself was also intended to bring courage and hope to music and festival fans worldwide, and to give them a little bit of fun.
