Music Video Launch Event: Fri 18 Nov 2016

WATCH ON YOUTUBE: “Have You Forgotten Me?” music video

Mundy-Turner is very excited and proud to announce the upcoming release of our new music video commissioned by Micah Projects of our song “Have You Forgotten Me?”, written in collaboration with Mick Davis.

This is the first time we’ve had a film made of one of our songs. It was a great privilege to work with award-winning film-maker Katrina Irawati Graham as director/producer, cinematographer Linton Vivian, art director Katrine McLeod, co-producer Emma Spencer and film-editor Tom Francis.

The video is being released online in the week on the 7th anniversary of the National Apology to the Forgotten Australians & Former Child Migrants, 16 November 2016.

The official launch & screening of “Have You Forgotten Me?” will be Friday evening 18 November, 7pm at the State Library of Queensland’s Edge Auditorium, South Bank, Brisbane, in a special event presented by Micah Projects to mark the 7th Anniversary of the National Apology to the Forgotten Australians & Former Child Migrants.

Forgotten Australians are the more than 500,000 children who were raised in institutions and out-of-home ‘care’ during the 20th century. Invariably, these children were traumatised by the abusive treatment they received in these places. As the song says, we pray that “no child need ask again – ‘have you forgotten me?'”

DVD copies of the music video will be presented to Forgotten Australians as a tribute to their long struggle for recognition and acknowledgement.

The launch will also feature Forgotten Australians from Brisbane’s Lotus Place joining Mundy-Turner and With One Voice Brisbane choir in a live performance of “Have You Forgotten Me?”; a fitting and moving finale to this year’s Anniversary event.

The video is now released online via YouTube and Vimeo. YOU can get involved in sharing the video to your networks by joining our video Release team.

We are very grateful to Micah Projects for funding the project to create this poignant piece to raise awareness about this significant chapter of Australia’s history.
