MJ DELANEY SPEAKS TO THE TELEGRAPH ABOUT #FREEDOMFORGIRLS
Last year MJ Delaney remade the Spice Girls’ ‘Wannabe’ video for Project Everyone – raising awareness for the 17 Sustainable Development Goals agreed to by all 193-world leaders and the UN in 2015. The film also celebrated the Spice Girls ‘Girl Power’ – it was playful, iconic and fun – and went viral.
Delaney returned to Global Goals and Project Awareness this year for a fierce, defiant music video featuring Beyonce’s protest anthem from Lemonade – ‘Freedom’. Featuring young girls from across the globe lip-synching to the track – the viewer is bombarded by harsh statistics of the reality that many children and women face around the world.
MJ Delaney spoke to Richard Jones at The Telegraph about the film and the drive behind it.
