Join us on Wednesday 4th December at Three Blue Ducks Byron for a screening of Angus McDonald’s remarkable doco, MANUS – raising money for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC).
An award-winning documentary short film, MANUS shines a light on the plight hundreds of refugees and asylum seekers held captive offshore by the Australian Federal Government for over six years on Manus Island in Papua New Guinea. Claim your spot on the lawn at The Farm and hear the stories of the men on Manus in their own words, followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Angus.
“I wanted the public to hear from the men themselves in this film, something that happens too rarely and suits the Federal government who has continually tried to keep those offshore on Manus Island and Nauru invisible from the Australian public,” says Angus. “I’ve attempted to create a carefully crafted film about innocent people in a long, brutal predicament, told in their own words, intended to provide powerful insights into their situation and humanise their plight for the public.”
On the night, you’ll be able to enjoy a casual dinner from the Ducks barbecue, with our mates from Stone & Wood also bringing their truck around.
Tickets are $8 + BF with $10 sausage sizzle and $5 beer/soft drinks.
