M.I.A. “Borders”

Never one to shy from politically charged subject matter, M.I.A. is back with a video that talks directly to the refugee crisis that was a hot-button topic in the press this year. Directed by the artist herself, she sings amidst crowds of immigrants, climbing fences and packing boats. They form the word “LIFE” in one scene, and a cruiser in another. Her lyrics highlight our ignorance of the issue, being more concerned with “breaking the internet” than addressing the tragedy of this unfortunate real-life situation.
