Free Movie Screening Celebrating Refugee Week

New tickets released!

One family, two wars, three countries. What does it take to belong?

'With courage let us all combine' is the theme for Refugee Week 2017 (18-24 June). To acknowledge and raise awareness about the issues affecting refugees and celebrate the positive contributions made by refugees to Australian society, the City of Belmont in conjunction with Town of Victoria Park and The Humanitarian Group will be screening an uplifting and moving film Constance on the Edge.

Filmed over 10 years, Constance on the Edge is an unflinchingly honest depiction of one refugee family’s resettlement story in Australia.

A mother of six who has migrated to Australia, Constance confronts her painful past in war torn Sudan and risks everything in Australia so her family can thrive. Mary, Constance’s niece, finds it impossible to find a job. Vicky, her daughter, studies every morning from 4am, hoping to get into university. Charles, 23, is struggling with alienation and depression.

Constance on the Edge gets to the heart of a contemporary untold story about the courage and resilience it takes to build new lives. The film also highlights the important role communities play in encouraging a sense of welcoming, healing and belonging.

Popcorn and drink included.
