Event description

Description

Join us at this rescheduled talk. James Knight, co-author of Under the Same Sky, as he presents the story of Milad & Mojgan two Iranian refugees who separately made their way to Australia by boat, where they met in Brisbane, fell in love and eventually married and made plans for their life here. Their dreams were shattered when Mojgan was sent back to detention and shuttled between Brisbane and Darwin. Her refugee status was denied and she and her brother Hossein were told they had to return to Iran, which meant prison, torture or death.

Under the Same Sky is a powerful insight into the human face of asylum seekers and the way history has shaped the lives of these two young people. It also shows the compassion alive in our suburbs. For Mojgan and Milad, their love keeps their hopes alive.
