Shepparton: Screening of Freedom Stories

Freedom Stories is a collaborative documentary project from Flying Carpet Films. It 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.

The Satellite Rotary Club of Mooroopna Kialla presents the documentary film – ‘Freedom Stories’ on Wednesday March 21st 6.30pm at Harder Auditorium (GoTafe). You are invited to stay for a Q&A session with the director Steve Thomas and a light supper after the film.
