All tickets are the low “student price” of $15 to save on transaction fees charged by eventbrite. Extra donations will be graciously accepted at the door and will go back to support The Staging Post team to produce their second film.About the movie….In June, 2017 we released the feature documentary The Staging Post. Filmed by 17 year-old refugee Khadim Dai it followed the story of a small group of Afghan Hazara refugees stuck in Indonesia after Australia ‘stopped the boats’.In The Staging Post, the refugees inspired a refugee-led education revolution in Indonesia. There are now over 1500 students learning at 10 refugee-led schools, taught by around 100 volunteer refugee teachers!The film screened at packed cinemas across Australia and, through community support and word-of-mouth, we became the 14th biggest Australian Documentary at the Australian Box Office in 2017.Trailer
The film continues to screen at cinemas and community screenings across Australia and we plan to get on that scorecard again this year. More at thestagingpost.com.au
