SOAR BEYOND THE EXPECTED

Janelle Monae x Martell

THE UNEXPECTED EFFECT

Martell is proud to debut the next chapter of its “Soar Beyond the Expected” campaign with world-renowned artist Janelle Monáe and Cognac expert ms. franky marshall. This latest visual installment of Martell’s campaign, titled “The Unexpected Effect,” is directed by award-winning filmmaker Ewurakua Dawson-Amoah. The film sets out to showcase the unexpected and individual paths that many have taken and shed light on what it means to feel and spread joy – in overcoming, in free expression and in paving paths for those that will follow.
