Asylum seeker lives in limbo in Indonesia: Documentary screening event
The Monash Migration and Inclusion Centre, in partnership with the Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA) and the Immigration Museum, will host a documentary film event at the Immigration Museum (400 Flinders Street, Melbourne) on Saturday, November 10, 2018 from 2-4pm.
Two short films will be screened on the experiences of asylum seekers in limbo in Indonesia: ‘Respite' and ‘Performing out of limbo'. The film screenings will be followed by a Q&A featuring:
- Film directors, live from Jakarta
- Mozghan Moaref, current refugee in Indonesia and founder of the Refugee and Asylum Seeker Information Centre in Jakarta
- Asher Hirsch, senior policy officer at RCOA and PhD student at Monash University
The Q&A will be facilitated by Max Walden, a journalist focusing on Southeast Asia and Melbourne University PhD candidate. RCOA will also launch a new briefing note on the situation for asylum seekers in limbo in Indonesia.
Tickets are limited and you can register for this event in advance here. Tickets are $5.50 (including GST).
A donation box will be available on the day to support RCOA’s work with refugees in Indonesia.
