Actions and Detail Panel
Film for Thought
Thu. 3 December 2015, 6:45 pm – 8:45 pm AEDT
Join Road to Refuge for a night of thought-provoking film and discussion.
We are proud to present two shorts from Australia’s young award-winning filmmakers, Nowhere Line by Lukas Schrank and The Phoenix by Nora Niasari. Using the medium of film, the two directors capture the harsh and widely ignored reality of mandatory detention.
The two screenings will be followed by a panel discussion; exploring the film's themes and discussing the idea of advocacy through art, in its various forms.
Facilitated by our very own Roj Amedi, the panel will be comprised of:
Nora Niasari, Filmmaker The Phoenix
Baqir Khan, Member Volunteer Coordinator at the ASRC, former Cultural Support Coordinator at Life Without Barriers
Celine Yap, Activist Arts Festival Director for Amnesty International, Presenter for Refugee Radio on 3CR, member of folk band - Little Foot
