On August 16, 2016, UCHM hosted a screening of Chasing Asylum, at Palace Kino Cinema in the CBD.
The event was a sell out and the evening a great success, with engaging input from a panel of speakers who addressed the audience after the screening.
For more details about Chasing Asylum, see below:
“Chasing Asylum exposes the real impact of Australia’s offshore detention policies and explores how ‘The Lucky Country’ became one 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 even the fiscal consequences of Australia’s decision to lock away families in unsanitary conditions away from media scrutiny, destroying their lives under the pretext of saving them.”
