Refugee Week - Freedom Stories Screening
Northcote High would like to invite you all to a special screening of the uplifting documentary "Freedom Stories" during Refugee week on Wednesday the 21st of June.
Freedom Stories is a positive documentary that explores the achievements and stories of former ‘boat people’ who arrived in Australian waters seeking asylum from the Middle East around 2001, a defining year in Australian politics.
Locked in remote detention centres and then placed on temporary protection visas, their limbo lasted for years. Now Australian citizens, they are finally building secure lives and contributing to their new country.
Freedom Stories premiered at the Sydney Film Festival and also screened at Cinema Nova for a season.
We will be joined by producer Lisa Horler (an NHS parent) who will introduce the film and answer any questions after the screening.
This is a great opportunity to further educate yourself and your children on the issues surrounding Australia's relationship with refugees.
Suitable for all ages.
Cheese and Wine provided.
When: Wednesday 21 June 2017
Time: Arrive at 6.30pm, viewing starts at 7.00pm
Where: Northcote High School Library (St Georges Road, Northcote)
