Chasing Asylum Screening- S4R Murdoch
Wed. 12 October 2016, 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm AWST
Murdoch Students for Refugees will be hosting a screening of "the film the Australian government doesn't want you to see": Eva Orner's groundbreaking documentary CHASING ASYLUM.
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.
Join us from 3pm at ECL 3 for the free screening (snacks provided), followed by chats, and debreif with S4R Murdoch. Come and see what we've got planned and how you can get involved with S4R over the summer and next year!
