We finally have our answer to a not-so-eternal question: What would a public service announcement by Australian singer-songwriter Sia would look like? Narrated by Julianne Moore, the music video for “Free Me” begins with a woman (played by Zoe Saldana) being informed that HIV is wreaking havoc on her immune system. The woman’s world turns dark, literally, after which she’s foisted into a slipstream. She lands in the middle of an interpretive dance with a group of balletic guardian angels before the doctor’s examination room is then revealed, Michel Gondry-style, as a set; a Sia proxy soon appears to lend the woman her support, both hanging on to each other as they run about woman’s increasingly brightening psyche. Like most of Sia’s interpretive dance-themed videos, this is a show of resilience, ending poignantly on the woman, no longer in despair, holding her infant child in her hands.
