SCREENING CHASING ASYLUM DOCUMENTARY
TUESDAY 25TH 7PM - 10PM
Seeking asylum is a fundamental human right.
To raise awareness of the Australian Government's ridiculous (and illegal) offshore detention process, BackYard Opera will be hosting a private screening of 'Chasing Asylum'.
For those who don't already know, it is a documentary directed by Academy Award winning director, Eva Orner, on the establishment and cruel nature of the detention centres on Manus Island and Nauru, and the asylum seekers' plight.
Although it is not the most uplifting film, we wholeheartedly recommend watching it, as its exposure will help create dialogue on this important issue and increase support of the pressure that's being put of the government to close the centres down.
