Romain Gavras is sharing some of his most critically acclaimed music videos via his Vimeo channel in glorious HD – and he’s just uploaded an unreleased edit of Justice’s seminal breakout track ‘Stress’.
The video was massively controversial when it was release in 2008 because it features a gang of feral youths mugging people.
Time magazine described the video as “a seven-minute video depicting a group of French adolescents, visibly of African and North African descent, wreaking havoc as they swarm from their neglected homes in the outskirts or banlieues of Paris into the heart of the city, all to a grueling, nightmarish electro beat. Followed by a camera crew from their housing project to Sacre Coeur to Charles de Gaulle airport, they harass women, break a bottle over a café owner’s head, fight with the police and commit a carjacking. The video ends with the car set aflame and the cameraman apparently beaten unconscious.
If you’ve never seen the video before you’re in for a wild ride.
Also, could Gavras’ upload be signalling that Justice’s new, as-yet unnamed, album is ready? Well, we actually know when the duo’s new album is coming out, but have been sworn to secrecy – all we can say is it’s coming *soon*.
