SA: Special Fundraising Screening of “Chasing Asylum”
Dear South Australian ALHR Members,
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 remarks by Claire O’Connor SC. Special member pricing applies, but non-members are more than welcome, so please feel free to forward this to your friends and colleagues.
When: Friday 27 May 2016. Opening remarks: 6:30pm, film starts: 6:50pm.
Where: Mercury Cinema, 13 Morphett St, Adelaide
Tickets: Non-members $25.00, Concession $20.00, ALHR members $15.00
