The film the Australian government doesn't want you to see.
Documentary featuring never-before-seen footage from inside Australia's offshore detention camps on Manus Island and Nauru, and promising to "reveal the personal impact of sending those in search of a safe home to languish in limbo". From Australian producer and documentarian Eva Orner (producer, Taxi to the Dark Side).
Says Orner, "Living in the USA for much of the past decade, I watched with increasing sadness as the Australia I know and love was dragged into a climate of fear by successive governments determined to convince us of the dangers of boat people. I really hope that Chasing Asylum informs and engages Australians to think more openly about the individual experiences of displaced people seeking a safer life."
