Ad of the Day: Smirnoff - Arrival

Garth Davis has had a good year. He was responsible for directing most episodes of Jane Campion's modern noir masterpiece Top of the Lake and it's a huge compliment to the Australian director that a film-maker as accomplished as Campion trusted him to do so. Despite his success in the drama realm, he continues to make commercials and he brings a huge amount of photographic skill to this Australian ad for Smirnoff.
