Revelation Perth International Film Festival in association with Cinema Australia proudly present a celebration of Australian film - past present and future - through a program of monthly screenings.
CHASING ASYLUM exposes the real impact of Australia’s offshore detention policies and explores how 'The Lucky Country' became a country where leaders choose detention over compassion and governments deprive the desperate of their basic human rights.
The film features never before seen footage from inside Australia’s offshore detention camps, revealing the personal impact of sending those in search of a safe home to languish in limbo.
CHASING ASYLUM explores the mental, physical and fiscal consequences of Australia’s decision to lock away families in unsanitary conditions hidden from media scrutiny, destroying their lives under the pretext of saving them.
"Chasing Asylum" confronts Australia's hardline policy of detaining asylum seekers in offshore processing centers, offering a powerfully crafted plea for human rights will move many viewers to tears. Richard Kuipers, Variety
