Max Threlfall accompanied rapper Tua during the film shoot for the new music video “Wenn ich gehen muss” (If I have to go) and portrayed the crew of the Alan Kurdi vessel, committed to civil sea rescue in the Mediterranean. The video is an appeal to society to deal with the brutal reality on Europe’s borders in the Mediterranean. “I wanted to make a music video that you can hardly stand to watch – because the situation today is so unbearable.” says Tua.
The video was created according to the idea from Jung von Matt together with aid organization Sea-Eye. Tua would like to set and example for civil sea rescue and donates all proceeds from the track to Sea-Eye. Here is the link to the disturbing making-of video: youtube.com/watch?v=EOmz_EXNTu8
