FilmInk Presents is proud to announce its Sydney screening of Chasing Asylum, a controversial documentary by Academy Award winner, Eva Orner. Chasing Asylum will be screening at The Ritz Cinema on Sunday the 22th of May at 6.00pm. The screening will be followed by an audience Q&A with director Eva Orner.
“Chasing Asylum exposes the real impact of Australia’s offshore detention policies and explores how ‘The Lucky Country’ became a country where leaders choose detention over compassion and governments deprive the desperate of their basic human rights. The film features never before seen footage from inside Australia’s offshore detention camps, revealing the personal impact of sending those in search of a safe home to languish in limbo. 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.”
Chasing Asylum will be screening all over Australia. Check http://www.chasingasylum.com.au for more listing.
