Coburg: Film: Hope Road
20 April 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This April, VICSEG New Futures along with Merri Health and Moreland City Council, is hosting two screenings of the film “Hope Road” by acclaimed documentary maker Tom Zubrycki.
The film follows a refugee from the Sudanese civil war, Zacharia (one of the ‘Lost Boys’ of Sudan) who lives in Sydney with his wife and daughter. He desperately wants to do something for his former village, now in the newly created nation of South Sudan. His dream is to build a much-needed school, and he enlists the backing of his numerous Australian friends to return to his village of Abyei Ajok and raise money for the building of the school.
But nothing is simple on Hope Road.
Screening at COBURG:
Join us for an evening including film screening, Q & A by Zacharia and the film maker – Tom Zubrycki, delicious soup, warm company and commentary by South Sudanese Community Leaders.
Tickets: $21 per person (includes deliscious soup!)
All proceeds go towards the ‘Hope Road‘ initiative, for the building of a school in the village of Abyei Ajok, South Sudan.
