If Valentine’s Day sounds to you like an occasion for a good old-fashioned barn-raising, you’re in luck. The newly launched fashion and culture site The Aesthete is celebrating the holiday without the usual hearts and chocolates. Its new video, “Modern,” directed by and starring Jon Beasley and Isabelle Albuquerque of Osk Studio, looks at love through a primly puritan lens.

The full film, with cinematography by Sundance award winner Bradford Young and an original score by Hecuba, premieres today on TheAesthete.com; an exclusive preview is below.
