Adriaan Louw channels the spirit and chaos of street protest with his gripping video for South African rapper Riky Rick's I Can't Believe It.

In a wintry Johannesbourg, Louw creates an alluring world in which a group of charismatic young men carry out their plans to reclaim the streets. Shot on 16mm it has a visual style that slips between past and present, incorporating fashion from the eras of the Balck Panthers and the Mods. But the characterisation, and the action and energy of the rioting, captured by the director at the climax of the piece, packs a real punch.
