This music video, featuring singer/songwriter Connie Kaldor's Get Back the
Night
is an inspired statement against senseless violence. Reacting to
news that her friend was stabbed for no apparent reason on the streets of
Vancouver, Kaldor created the video scenario of a Moon Goddess (dancer Anne
Harvie) who comes down to Earth to exterminate violence and sparks a
spontaneous street carnival. The video also features Vancouver street theatre
troupe The Public Dream Society. Embodying a positive and important message
for a youthful audience, Get Back the Night is intended to make those
who may commit violence think twice.
