Eva Orne / Australia / 2016 / 96 min
In this revealing and disturbing documentary, Academy Award-winner Eva Orne shows the consequences of the harsh asylum policies of Australia: A chilling example of how dehumanizing immigration policies can become.
Australian authorities categorically refuse all refugees who come by boat, and ships them to one of the most dangerous countries in the world, Papua New Guinea, or one of the smallest and most remote countries, the pacific island state of Nauru. A life in the refugee camps on these islands turns out to be equal to life in a war zone, and eventually it grinds down both the physical and psychological health of the refugees.
