Event description

Description

Refugee week is an annual week-long celebration of the positive contributions of refugees to Australian society, and this year MidCoast Libraries will host a film screening and special guest speaker at Taree and Forster Libraries.

We will be screening the 2003 documentary 'Molly and Mobarak'. This is the story of Mobarak Tahiri, a young Hazara refugee, who is living in the town of Young, in rural NSW. Categorized as an illegal immigrant by the Australian government, Mobarak was initially detained in the Curtin Detention Centre near Derby, WA, before being granted a Temporary Protection Visa (TPV) that allowed him to live and work in the general Australian community and then return home once the visa expires.

Director:Tom Zubrycki Country:Australia Rating:M Year Of Release:2003 Duration: 1:25:29 mins

Refreshments will be provided at both events.
