HRAFF Hobart 2017
June 2, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:45 pm UTC+10
This June, join us in celebrating 10 years of the Human Rights Arts and Film Festival at the University of Tasmania campus, where we’ll be screening the highly acclaimed film, CONSTANCE ON THE EDGE.
Brought to you with the help of our principal partner Bank Australia, 2017 promises to be our biggest festival ever. There has never been a better chance to delve into what HRAFF has to offer!
Come along for a pre-film mingle at 5:30pm with the film kicking off at 6pm followed by a panel.
Constance is a strong Acholi woman who was one of the first refugees from South Sudan to settle in Wagga Wagga with her family in 2005. A third generation refugee, victim of war crimes, a survivor, single mother, community leader and activist; Constance is charismatic, although troubled. Filmed over ten years, honest interviews are complemented by animated sequences and archive footage that pulls together this family’s story of navigating a challenging settlement journey in Australia, after fleeing civil war abroad. Hope flourishes for their future in this story about the importance of community and sense of agency in those who must rebuild.
