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.
