Sun Theatre Screening: Constance on the Edge
One family. Two wars. Three countries. What does it take to belong?
Filmed over 10 years, Constance on the Edge is an unflinchingly honest portrayal of one refugee family’s resettlement story in Australia.
Brave, lion-hearted, charismatic Constance, mother of six, 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.
Following the screening there will be a panel discussion on the settlement issues raised in the film.
TICKETS: $25 + Booking Fee. With all profits from the filming will go towards supporting the journey of refugee and migrant children in Melbourne.
LOCATION: Sun Theatre, Yarraville *
