Rembetika music – or the Greek blues – is a music born of exile and the streets.  
 
Developing its roots from the mass migration of people in the early 20th century, filmmaker M Zournazi traces the journey of her forebears from Smyrna in Turkey to Sydney. She discovers not only her family history but how music connects people during times of struggle and crises.  
 
By weaving together different stories of music and migration, she documents experiences that are often left out of the chronicles of history while exploring her personal connection to the music.  
 
Prior to the screening we will be hosting our monthly night for vinyl lovers, The Vinyl Lounge. Come and select a song (or bring your own) to play for the audience and share your own music story!
