Melbourne – Music Video Launch and Exhibition
26 April 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Farhad Bandesh is in detention on Manus Island. This event is being run to showcase Farhad’s art and humanity while also fundraising to help cover the fees for his sponsorship to Canada which has already been arranged.
The event is a launch for the video for ‘The Big Exhale’ and is a cross-continental
collaboration. It began with Farhad’s poem which was then co-written into a song with Jenell Quinsee and ending with a high-quality arrangement and production by Wantok Musik’s Creative Director, David Bridie.
The music video involves the volunteered time and talents of Melbourne City Ballet, Bilal Zeine, Isobel Hede and Wendyhouse films.
The screening and an accompanying exhibition will be held at the Blak Dot Gallery in Brunswick on Friday 26th April, 6-8pm. Copies of his artwork will be for sale and all money going towards getting Farhad out of detention.
