Refugee Week 2022

clock14th June 2022

What to watch this Refugee Week 

Freedom Stories

Freedom Stories is a collaborative documentary project from Flying Carpet Films. It explores the achievements and stories of former ‘boat people’ who arrived in Australian waters seeking asylum from the Middle East around 2001, a defining year in Australian politics. Locked in remote detention centres and then placed on temporary protection visas, their limbo lasted for years. Now Australian citizens, they are finally building secure lives and contributing to their new country.

MANUS

MANUS is a 13 minute film, which shines a light on the plight of hundreds of asylum seekers held captive by the Australian Government on Manus Island in PNG for over 6 years.

The Forgotten

The Forgotten tells the story of one young woman’s risky journey into the hostile, poverty-stricken Eritrean refugee camps in Sudan.

Her journey will open your eyes to those who thought their lives, their stories, and their voices were…forgotten.

What she uncovered opened her eyes to the conditions that these refugees live in every day. She encountered many dangerous obstacles during her journey, but made it back in one piece to share their stories and to be the international voice for the Eritrean refugee crisis.
