Plato III's New Video "Womankind" Is About Praising the Goddess That Is Each Woman





Plato III's New Video "Womankind" Is About Praising the Goddess That Is Each Woman

A while back, Austin up-and-comer Plato III released a new track called "Womankind," a heady piece with a nice beat that puts the burden on men when it comes to our treatment of women in this world, which we thought was another very interesting and well-produced track for the budding artist. “Womankind” was a follow-up to the artist's killer take on fame that was track and video "Natalie Portman," and now Plato's kept up this pattern of releasing beautiful and poignant music videos for each of his few, but highly polished tracks by dropping a new video take on "Womankind."

The video here is, unsurprisingly, thoughtful and gorgeously rendered. It features a single stunning woman, presented as a being of intense power and beauty without referencing her sexually at all even, and this is difficult, when she is shown fully nude. The woman in question is shown dancing with confidence and skill through a raw natural setting, which doesn't feel like a contrast at all to her humanity, but instead feels exactly fitting. She's not fighting against nature, she is nature, a literal embodiment of it. That this woman is pregnant while moving like a lithe nature goddess isn't brought to the forefront of the video until the last half of the video, a powerful way to underscore the point of both track and video; that we've really stepped away as humans from valuing the incredible power and beauty of women outside of seeing them sexually. That they are our givers of life.

It's truly a nice piece of work both musically and in its film incarnation, and as such it's just more proof that Plato III is an artist worth both listening to and keeping an eye on. Put your own eyes to work below, and keep up with Plato at his Facebook page here, where he often gives meaningful commentary and context for his work.
