ALHR WA’s Annual Film Fundraising Night presents the acclaimed film ‘Nowhere Home’ (24 June 2013)
“Is the reason we have a system that doesn’t recognise other people’s suffering because we can keep it at a distance?” – Nowhere Home film director Margreth Olin
Join Australian Lawyers for Human Rights, the Young Lawyers Committee of WA, and King & Wood Mallesons for our annual film fundraising night as we present the Australian premier of acclaimed documentary film Nowhere Home.
“Nowhere Home” considers the plight of unaccompanied minors seeking asylum in Norway, only to be returned to their country of origin.
The film draws significant parallels to the issue of Australia’s approach to the treatment of children seeking asylum here. Nowhere Home debuts in Australia at our film night after appearing in various European human rights film festivals, including the Human Rights Watch Film Festival in London.
