Watch as Alanis watches over Berlin in some angel wings. ‘Guardian’ is Alanis’ first single off Havoc & Bright Lights.
“this video is a tip of the hat to Wim Wenders’ Wings of Desire (it is the 25th anniversary of the film having been released). the full circle poetry of my having written ‘uninivited’ for itsremake, combined with my love of the original movie, combined with my love of Germany, having lived there for three years as a child (by the Black Forest) combined most importantly with how this video is such a visual extension of the song ‘guardian’, which is so close to my heart….it was so much fun to make it in Berlin! i think it really shows how the parent/guardian angel role are linked….how, ultimately, a powerful inner parent calls upon spirit to guide her/his choices on the loved ones’ behalf…whether it is for a child, a friend, or an inner child…this love and this grace is available to everyone.” –am
