Event Details

5 interweaving short films about Hobart’s refugees and new arrivals, and their struggle to belong.

Nationally regarded film industry identities based in Hobart have collaborated to produce THREAD, a series of short films by young migrants and refugees. It explores themes of adaptation, struggle, and thriving in a new community as outsiders.

The cast and crew consist of experienced professionals, emerging actors and filmmakers, students from Claremont College and members of the refugee and new arrival community. These communities are from Nepal, Afghanistan, China, Congo, South Sudan, Malaysia, Iraq, Iran and Thailand. The films have an authentic and urgent feel and feature four different languages, English, Mandarin, Nepali and Persian.

The project was the brainchild of award winning filmmaker R. Lucien Simon and supported by the Moonah Arts Centre, Youth ARC, the Migrant Resource Centre and Students Against Racism.

Audience advice:

This film contains some violent scenes and content that may be distressing for some viewers.
