Amnesty International free film screening

On July 23, Amnesty International’s Urgent Action Network will host a free film screening event of the documentary ‘Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea’.

This 52-minute doco explores the circumstances and reasons that many asylum seekers make the choice to step onto boats and make the dangerous journey to Australia. The filmmakers, Jessie Taylor and Ali Reza Sadiqi, met with 250 asylum seekers in gaols, detention centres and hostels across Indonesia to discover what drives refugees to become ‘boat people’.

The refugee issue continues to be a controversial and desperately misunderstood subject in Australia, as it is in many other parts of the world. No matter your personal opinion on this issue, this event is sure to be thought-provoking. Catering will be provided by the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre. Book your free tickets here.
