M.I.A.’s “Born Free” video directed by Romain Gavras, the son of Costa-Gavras (of Z fame), seems to be clearly inspired by Peter Watkins Punishment Park, which we screen this week at NWFF. The video has apparently been banned from youtube for its graphic content so you’ll have to watch it here. There is a small youtube making of video which looks like a promo for something called the ultimate arm. You can see that below. For you M.I.A. fans, come out this weekend to the film that inspired this remarkably realistic music video.
