English Description
Nobody believes in banks anymore. After all, a bank is a bank. Don’t their interests always come first?

While its peers posted record losses, Standard Chartered was unaffected. By avoiding financial weapons of mass destruction, we wanted to tell people Standard Chartered is Here for good.

But words are only words. We needed to demonstrate Here for good in the delivery of the communication. So a rare opportunity was given to young artists and independent filmmakers, unrelated to advertising. All were invited to bring our brand belief to life.

To represent the bank’s footprint of Asia, Africa and the Middle East, three films were created. Each film has its own interpretation. Each one has a distinct execution.

This film was created by Ezra Wube, an Ethiopian-born artist.
