Transsexuality might be a hot media topic in this period, yet David Wilson brilliantly manages to find a new side of the story to approach in this music video for Arcade Fire’s “We Exist”. Starring Andrew Garfield, this wonderful mix of doubts, fears, prejudices, violence and courage puts viewers in the shoes of a trans-person overcoming his identity crisis. And what better way of emphasizing the duality of the situation, than with a cheesy dance sequence, a David Wilson trade-mark, to lighten an otherwise dark and dramatic mood? Great work once again from one of the most active and creative music video directors today!
