Victoria - Screening of docu Freedom Stories

Victoria - Screening of docu Freedom Stories

This Sunday (26 July) in Cinema Nova (Carlton, Vic) is another screening of the docu "Freedom Stories".

"Freedom Stories is a multi-platform documentary project exploring the contribution being made to Australian society by former asylum seekers who arrived by boat around 2001 – the year of political controversy over the MV Tampa, the Pacific solution, the children overboard affair and the SIEV X disaster.

They found themselves in indefinite mandatory detention in remote places such as Woomera or Nauru and then placed on temporary protection visas (TPVs), which extended their uncertainty. It has taken much resilience and many years for them to build secure lives, become Australian citizens and start contributing to their new country."

The screening is at the same time a fundraiser for the Asylum Seeker Welcome Centre which is locally based in Brunswick, an initiative of Lentara Uniting Care.

Tickets $20 each. If you are happy to pre-pay for your ticket (that would be awesome!!) please contact sarahheynemann@gmail.com for banking transfer details, otherwise money on the day. RSVP by midday Friday July 24th as need to lock in ticket numbers with Nova prior.
