Freedom Stories at Aireys Inlet Pub
13 August 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Aireys Inlet Rural Australians for Refugees
Presenting a welcome respite from the political cacophony that usually accompanies discussions of asylum seekers and refugees, Freedom Stories takes a considered look at the lives and achievements of former ‘boat people’ who have spent the last decade making Australia their home. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Steve Thomas (Hope, 2008), some of the documentary’s participants were just children when they arrived from the Middle East around 2001 seeking asylum.
These are ordinary people who found themselves trapped in the extraordinary consequences of political manoeuvring. Now, finally, it is time for their voices to be heard.
