Deep Blue Sea Film National Tour - AMBASSADOR SCREENING
South Brisbane Screening
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is a film for everyone. Come along, and bring a friend who wouldn't normally watch a film about 'boat people'.
This is the film that Tony and Julia don’t want you to see. That’s why Jessie Taylor and her team are taking the film on a National Road Trip to 30 major cities around Australia, before hosting a screening for our politicians at Parliament House in Canberra on Monday 18th March 2013. And now, it’s coming to a city near you!
WHAT: Come and watch a screening in South Brisbane as part of the Deep Blue Sea Film National Tour:
- Watch a screening of the documentary Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
- Engage in a conversation about the issues raised in the film with Jessie Taylor and a panel of guest speakers.
- Support the Deep Blue Sea Film National Tour and Edmund Rice Advocacy For Change by purchasing a selection of merchandise available on the night.
WHEN: 7:00pm Thursday 28th February 2013
WHERE: The McElligot Theatre, St. Laurence's College

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is a 52 minute documentary looking at the circumstances and decisions that lead someone to become a ‘boat person’.
When she was 9, Zainab’s parents made the heartbreaking decision to leave their home in northern Afghanistan. They set out on a journey across the globe, putting the fate of their family in the hands of strangers. Across borders, behind bars and onto a smuggler’s boat – the family chased freedom. Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea tells Zainab’s story, and the story of many others who have trodden the same path.
Jessie Taylor and Ali Reza Sadiqi travelled across Indonesia and met with 250 asylum seekers in jails, detention centres and hostels. Through candid interviews, hidden camera footage and in the words of asylum seekers themselves, the story of the ‘refugee’ is told. What pushes people to leave home? What do they leave behind? What do they fear? Why did they choose this path? And what does it take to turn someone into a ‘boat person’?
Meet the human faces behind the most controversial issue of our time.
CLASSIFICATION: While the film does not contain explicit material parental guidance is advised.
The Deep Blue Sea Film National Tour has been made possible thanks to the generous donations of 416 individual supporters to our crowdfunding campaign in October 2012: www.pozible.com/deepblueseafilm
