Has your life been missing an Exorcist -inspired short film starring anthropomorphic vegetables and clumps of hair who drift in and out of dreamlike (or nightmare) states, all set to an industrial-techno-meets-Beethoven soundtrack?

Well then, have we got the video for you!

Director Sergio Caballero has created Ancha es Castilla/N'importe Quoi as the video centerpiece for this year's Sónar Festival. As Sónar's co-director and founder, Caballero creates an annual video that represents the festival. While Sónar is mostly a music festival, as this video shows, there's much more to it than that. This year's video is darkly humorous, strangely beautiful and completely twisted, but ultimately thought-provoking, just like the festival.
