Majid Adin's Video for Rocket Man

Majid Adin's Video for Rocket Man

From the Jungle in Calais to working with Elton John.

In January 2016, Mike travelled to the Jungle Refugee Camp in Calais with Anna Murphy and other artists to offer a helping hand. There they met Majid, an Iranian refugee artist who would come to the Good Chance theatre every day to paint. 

Since that time, Majid had been working to enter a competition called The Cut, to produce a music video for Elton John. Majid built up a story of a refugee travelling across borders to be the rocket man: a thought-provoking story of adventure, loneliness and hope. Majid's brilliant work won the competition, and his moving story is now the official video for Elton John's Rocket Man!

The video is live on YouTube. Make sure you check it out and share Majid's brave story.
