QLD: Special Fundraising Screening of “Chasing Asylum”

Date: Wed 20th July 2016

You are invited to attend a special fundraising screening of the film Chasing Asylum by Academy award winning director Eva Orner.

Chasing Asylum exposes the real impact of Australia’s offshore detention policies and explores how ‘The Lucky Country’ became a country 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 fiscal consequences of Australia’s decision to lock away families in unsanitary conditions hidden from media scrutiny, destroying their lives under the pretext of saving them.

The evening will be introduced with opening video containing remarks by filmmaker Eva Orner.

ALHR members are eligible for discounted tickets.  This invitation is open to the public as well, so please forward the information to your friends and colleagues!
