It’s the film the Australian government does not want you to see.
Nominated this year for the AACTA Award for Best Feature Length Documentary, Crossing Borders MeDUSA, DYSA and DUMUN are proud to present Deakin University’s joint screening of Chasing Asylum.
Asylum seekers and refugees have made news headlines for decades. But, with the release of the Nauru files documenting thousands of leaked reports of abuse of children in Australian offshore detention, Eva Orner’s film Chasing Asylum will only intensify Australia’s asylum seeker shame. Guaranteed to shock, it will make you think twice about Australia’s torturous offshore detention policies - about the way it drives those it holds captive to insanity, depression and suicide.
Rated 7.5/10 on IMDB and 4/5 by The Guardian, this film is not to be missed!
Food/catering will be provided.
Still showing in cinemas, tickets are:
- only $5 for MEDUSA, DYSC and DUMUN members
