Jessie Taylor and Ali Reza Sadiqi travelled across Indonesia and met with 250 asylum seekers in jails, detention centres and hostels. Through candid interviews, hidden camera footage and in the words of asylum seekers themselves, the story of the ‘refugee’ is told. What pushes people to leave home? What do they leave behind? What do they fear? Why did they choose this path? And what does it take to turn someone into a ‘boat person’?

Come and meet Jessie – a Barrister, refugee advocate, human rights enthusiast & foster mum. 

The documentary will be viewed and we will hear directly from Jessie on the challenges of making this acclaimed documentary.
