The film the Australian government doesn’t want you to see.
BOFA is proud to partner with CinemaPlus and Amnesty International, Tasmania Branch to bring this controversial film and its Director Eva Orner to Launceston.
From the Academy Award winning Eva Orner (Producer, TAXI TO THE DARK SIDE; Director, THE NETWORK), CHASING ASYLUM reveals the personal impact of sending those in search of a safe home to languish in limbo – with never before seen footage from inside Australia’s offshore detention camps.
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.
You can meet Eva Orner at an intimate and in depth Q&A after the film.
“For too long the Australian Government has been hiding behind a policy of secrecy regarding offshore detention. The Australian people can’t decide what they think unless they are informed and can see exactly what is going on in our detention centres on Nauru and Manus. I invite all Australians to come and see the film, and then make up their own minds as to whether our treatment of asylum seekers is humane and justified or not”… director Eva Orner.
