Fornax supported Balázs Lévai’s documentary, “Like a Child”, a film made in the memory of jazz singer Juli Fábián. Almost exactly two years after Juli Fábián’s death, on the 15th of December 2019, the TV channel M2 Petőfi showed Balázs Lévai’s documentary, “Like a Child”, a film following Juli’s tragically short life. The arch of the film focuses on the singer becoming an artist, it is the stages of this process it tries to grasp and circumnavigate with the help of family members, former teachers and colleagues.
In addition to the recollections of Juli’s loved ones and the archive footages, a special feature of the film is the Konyha feat song performed by eighteen singers together – all Juli’s friends: Bea Palya, Kati Wolf, Vera Tóth, Misi Mező, Freddie, Vera Jónás, Zoli Mujahid, Myrtill Micheller, Éva Bolba, Orsi Urbán, Zita Gereben, Lili Péterffy, Gábor Heincz’Biga’ és Emese Molnár; and the singers who stepped down to offer Juli the Petőfi Music Award last year: Magdi Rúzsa, Viki Lábas and Barbara Schoblocher. The song was written by Mátyás Szepesi, the lead man of the band called Konyha, Juli’s fellow musician and the manager of several of her bands (Fábián Juli & Zoohacker, Random Trip)
