'Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea' - Film and panel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A film that every Australian needs to see, followed by a panel discussion and action opportunities. The film Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea relates the story of the ‘refugee’. What pushes people to leave home? What do they leave behind? What do they fear? Why do they choose this path? And what does it take to turn someone into a ‘boat person’? The panel includes a Darfuri community leader, who will share his refugee story; representatives from the Asylum Seekers Centre, who will share information and facts about asylum seekers in Sydney; and Janet Granek, from Jewish Aid, who will reflect on how the Jewish community can help with this complex global problem. This is a double session.
