  • Watch a screening of the documentary Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea 
  • Engage in a Q&A with our guest speaker Gill Appleton, a local advocate for asylum seekers
  • Talk with representatives from organsiations who work with asylum seekers such as Amnesty International - find out how you can help in your local community!

Itinerary Map



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.
