Murundak: Songs Of Freedom

Community Screening

A journey into the heart of Aboriginal protest music…

‘Murundak – songs of freedom’ is a feature documentary that journeys into the heart of Aboriginal protest music following The Black Arm Band, a gathering of some of Australia’s finest Indigenous musicians, as they take to the road with their songs of resistance and freedom.

From the concert halls of the Sydney Opera House to remote Aboriginal communities of the Northern Territory, ‘murundak’ – meaning ‘alive’ in Woirurrung language – brings together pioneering singers including Archie Roach, Bart Willoughby and the late Ruby Hunter, and a stellar lineup of emerging Indigenous talent including Dan Sultan, Shellie Morris and Emma Donovan.

Filmed against the backdrop of Australia’s changing political landscape, ‘murundak’ charts one of the most significant events in Australian music history as The Black Arm Band sing up the country’s troubled past through their stories of sorrow, anger and hope.

This event is a fundraiser for upcoming events planned for June 24- 26 2017, marking 10 years since the NT Intervention, in standing up and standing together in solidarity, and to celebrate survival and strength of culture. This event will be facilitated by the Intervention Rollback Action Group.

Please come with an open mind and heart to embrace an uplifting story of hope and power! There will be kangaroo tail stew, damper, a chai stall and delicious vegan cakes to help yourself to in amongst the celebration of hope in action and community.

All proceeds go to the Intervention Rollback Action Group.
