Watch the HERO 24 cover story, Our God of Sorrows, come to life in a richly-atmospheric fashion film, shot by Szilveszter Makó, styled by Beat Bolliger and starring model-of-the-moment Braien Vaiksaar.

Drawing on classic German horror alongside mythical tales and phantasmagoric references, the black and white film expands on the surreal and mythical atmosphere of the cover editorial that casts Braien as a gothic protagonist.
