Jeremi Durand's powerful video for French rapper Keny Arkana imagines a near-future society at breaking point.

Referencing the sentiment of wilful blinkeredness when the world around you is going to hell – as expressed in Paul Misraki’s 1935 song from which it takes its title - Arkana's Madame la Marquise calls out modern society’s indifference to the destructive path we’re on.

That's brought vividly to life by Durand through the use of faceless almost humanoid dancers, a deserted cityscape, and the freedom expressed through a drifting BMW contrained within huge barriers arranged in a square. The intensity is heightened by the clever use of stock footage and VFX.
