To sum it up, the video remakes probable portraits from the 50s (specifically 1952) and recreates the actual events that were taking place at the time the photo was taken. The entire video is in slow motion HD and depicts many different all-American scenarios. But the translation and attention to detail is so striking and engrossing that even if it's a scenario you've seen before, this video shows it in an entirely different light. And of course the music is lush and gorgeous, which compliments the decade that was so well known for its aesthetically pleasing visuals. This is cinematography at its finest.
