M83 - Wait
The final chapter of the M83 video trilogy comes to a close with the music video for wait, narrating the result of the superpowered children from the Midnight City (Part 1) and Reunion (Part 2) music videos putting an end to human life on earth. The Fleur & Manu directed collaboration touched on themes of oppression, rebellion and unity, and introspection respectively for each of the chapters, with 'Wait' being the most poignant and mellow in tone. The video ends on a cliffhanger with a mysterious child from space crashing onto earth, which makes me wonder if M83 will be passing the torch to a new creative collective for the next chapter.
