Movie night: Chasing Asylum Wed 31 Aug 2016

Chasing Asylum, Wed 31 Aug 2016

Directed by Eva Orner, Chasing Asylum confronts Australia’s hardline policy of detaining asylum seekers in offshore processing centers, offering a powerfully crafted plea for human rights that will move many viewers to tears. Loaded with damning testimony from whistle-blowers and disturbing footage of wretched conditions inside camps on the island nation of Nauru and Manus Island in Papua New Guinea, the revealing and frequently heartbreaking documentary is bound to create shockwaves on home turf and should stir up plenty of interest elsewhere.

Free entry. Hosted by Barrington Tops Greens, tea/coffee available.

  • WHEN: Wed 31 August 2016 at 7.00pm
