M.I.A. - "Born Free" (2010)
Directed by French director Romain Gavras
Salon described "Born Free" as "the most violent music video in ages -- and a nine-minute masterpiece" adding that "M.I.A. has built a career on making music that's as outspoken as it is danceable" and described the video as "undeniably powerful, a lurid parable on the systematic ethnic cleansing that goes on all over the world."
A week after its release on Vimeo on April 26, the video was viewed 1.8 million times on the site.
