Chasing Asylum exposes the real impact of Australia’s offshore detention policies and explores how ‘The Lucky Country’ became a country where leaders choose detention over compassion and governments deprive the desperate of their basic human rights.
Directed by Oscar winner Eva Orner (Taxi to the Dark Side, The Network), Chasing Asylum 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 fiscal consequences of Australia’s decision to lock away families in unsanitary conditions hidden from media scrutiny, destroying their lives under the pretext of saving them.
Get involved and engaged by being one of the first to check out this highly anticipated documentary from one of this country’s best filmmakers, and stick around after the film to take part in an insightful Q&A with the Oscar winner herself, Eva Orner.
