BUNDLE: The Music of Love and Empowerment

  • 5 films

Rent all 5 films in the Swinburne student-curated The Music of Love and Empowerment program.

Five music documentaries, five stories of love and empowerment.

Just like cinema, music is a global language that connects all of us together. These are the true stories of musicians around the world expressing their love and yearning for freedom through their art. Reflected in all of them is the ways music can reach out to people, affecting and inspiring them in a multitude of ways. From pop stars speaking to their generation in The Beatles: Eight Days a Week and Matangi/Maya/M.I.A., to overcoming personal and societal tragedies in The Music of Strangers and Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda, to inspiring stories of indigenous empowerment in Murundak: Songs of Freedom.

Curated by Swinburne students: Moira Basil, Matthew Blakely, Hudson Camilleri, Natasha Chase, Mason Clark and Simone Craig.
