Music, environmental protection, animal rights and, belly dancing. These are some of the things Inanna brings to the world on a daily basis. Now the singer and activist has released a music video to ‘The Machine’, off of her recently released album, ‘Acrotopia‘.
The mostly black and white video shows Inanna weaving through factory machines, and dubious-looking workers, in a blood-red colored dress, all the while conveying a message about the rights of animals.
We can all have different opinions about eating other animals but there are sensible, ethical ways of doing things and then there is factory farming. The latter is nothing but torture and horror that even causes trauma to the workers/murderers not to mention the environmental effects such as deforestation, pollution, and the decline of smaller farms and rural communities.
“I firmly believe that all forms of art have an incredible capacity to drive change and create awareness, even about difficult issues such as animal exploitation. This video, inspired by some of my favorite movies of the silent era, wants to be an allegorical representation of the treatment of animals in factory farms and forests burnt by human activity. It is a dark video for a dark and emotional song, but it also includes a message of hope and a colorful fragment where we can catch a glimpse of a possible future where humans and animals live and thrive together. Both song and video want to witness what happens, but they also want to celebrate life and individuality of all Earthlings”
