Today, British singer M.I.A. released her newest single, "Born Again", in the form of a 9 minute, adrenaline charged music video, filled with explicit, and violent imagery. Directed by Romain Gavras, the French director has made a name for himself in the way he ties powerful music and real world visuals. The almost politically driven video is an interesting approach and one he has used before. A year ago, Gavras, directed a video for Justice called Stress (see below) that also leveraged high impact violence that portrayed a gang tearing through the streets of England.
