«DRAPEAU BLANC» NEW MUSIC VIDEO FROM CŒUR DE PIRATE

«Ne me laisse jamais seule / Qu’on ne se laisse plus seules avec le temps» (Never leave me alone / May we never leave each other alone with time), sings Béatrice Martin in "Drapeau blanc", the song for Cœur de pirate’s new video, which explores a current relationship with a forwardlooking perspective.

Produced by Mélissa Matos and Emmanuel Mauriès Rinfret, the video shows a woman burdened by her past, who gradually manages, thanks to the presence of her laughing child, to revisit memories of difficult relationships and find joy in the process. Romy, Béatrice’s daughter, gets her first official film role in a casting so close to the heart it needs no explanation.
