M.I.A. 난민 보트를 타고 뮤직비디오를 찍다(동영상)

영국 가수 엠아이에이(M.I.A.)가 27일 애플 뮤직을 통해 신곡 '보더스(Borders)'의 뮤직비디오를 공개했다. 비디오의 편집과 감독을 직접 맡았다고 한다.

'Border(국경)'이라는 제목에서도 알 수 있듯, 이번 곡은 자유를 찾아 국경을 넘는 이민자, 난민들에 대한 이야기가 담겼다. 뮤직비디오에서 많은 사람들이 철조망를 넘고, 보트를 타고 어디론가 향한다.

허핑턴포스트 프랑스판은 뮤직비디오에서 엠아이에이가 'Fly Pirates(플라이 피레이츠, 해적 항공)'이라고 적힌 축구 유니폼을 입고 나오는데 이는 파리 생제르맹FC를 후원하는 '아랍 에미레이트 항공(Fly Emirates)'를 패러디한 것이라고 보도했다. 아랍에미레이트는 시리아와 인접한 부유국이지만 난민 사태를 방관하는 현실을 비꼬는 듯하다.

실제로 엠아이에이 또한 난민이었다. 그녀는 스리랑카 출신 영국인으로, 본명은 마탕기 ‘마야’ 아룰프라가삼. 9살 때 내전을 피해 스리랑카에서 난민이 되어 런던의 저소득층 주택단지로 이주했다.

음악 사이트 피치포크에 따르면 이번 곡은 발매를 앞둔 그녀의 앨범 'Matahdatah'에 수록된다고 한다.

엠아이에이는 노래에서 "말이 돼냐(What’s Up With That)"고 계속해서 묻는다. '정치, 경찰의 총격, 정체성, 당신의 특권, 파산한 사람들, 보트 피플(난민), 진실, 새로운 세상.'에 대해서 말이다.
