Watch the video clip for “Spark of Hope”:

The clip features a Creole fencing duel, a Gaucho adaptation of European Castilian fencing, using local objects as a weapon along with swords and daggers, such as bolas and visors. The choreography was in charge of Roger Monteiro. The script for the clip was written by Ulisses Da Motta, who also directed, and Gianna Soccol, who also acts and does the art of “Spark of Hope”. Rounding out the cast are actors Marcos Guarani (in the role of Missioneiro) and Bruno Krieger (in the role of Lieutenant). The accordionist Eduardo Nichele joined the band in the clip, due to the unavailability of Matheus Kléber’s schedule, a great partner of the band and responsible for recording the accordion on the disc. Photo director Tiemy Saito and producer Eduardo Christofoli, from Collateral Filmes, complete the team. This is the third partnership between Ulisses, Tiemy and Eduardo with RAGE IN MY EYES. Previously, they shot clips for “Death Sleepers” (2019) and “And Then Came the Storm” (2021).

Guitarist Magnus Wichmann, who is Teixeirinha’s grandson, remembers the song “Velho Casarão”, released by his grandfather in two versions, between 1979 and 1984, in the albums “20 Anos de Glória” and “25 Anos de Sucesso”, respectively. According to Wichmann, the song talks about a fig tree and a duel, and with that came the inspiration for the story of the clip to be set at the foot of a fig tree, making this reference. In this excerpt of the lyrics of “Velho Casarão” it is possible to identify this passage: “Old mansion is almost covered / Of the large fig tree shading the roof / If she spoke she would tell the story / Of those who planted it a century ago / But as I am a grandson of those who planted it / I tell the story, the beloved house / There are bullet holes in its walls / Of the revolutions that history speaks of / It served as a trench, the balcony and the living room / For its builder, my famous grandfather”.
