Christmas Island is famous for one of the largest annual land migrations – that of forty million red crabs scurrying to the sea. It also houses a high-security detention facility, in which those seeking asylum in Australia are detained indefinitely.
Contrasting lush nature with enforced isolation, this stunning documentary follows trauma counsellor Poh Lin as she attempts to support detainees and explores the island’s terrain, its violent past and its inescapable present.
The screening at 2.30pm on Sun 13 Jan will be followed by a Q&A with director Gabrielle Brady, hosted by Tamara Van Strijthem (Executive Director of Take One Action Film Festival).
