Screening of Eva Orner's film "Chasing Asylum" plus Q&A

Eva Orner, Academy Award winner for best documentary for her film, 'Taxi to the Dark Side' took two years to make the extraordinary 'Chasing Asylum'. This film exposes the real impact of Australia’s offshore detention policies and explores how ‘The Lucky Country’ became one where leaders choose detention over compassion and governments deprive the desperate of their basic human rights. The film features never-before-seen footage from inside Australia’s offshore detention camps, revealing the personal impact of sending those in search of a safe home to languish in limbo. Chasing Asylum explores the mental, physical and even the fiscal consequences of Australia’s decision to lock away families in unsanitary conditions away from media scrutiny, destroying their lives under the pretext of saving them. Rating: MA15+
