Young Buddies events, 2013–2015
SCREENING AND PANEL: BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA @USC
When: 15 May
Where: University of the Sunshine Coast, LT4
About: Amnesty International USC and the USC International Relations Society are hosting the documentary 'Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea'. With an exciting panel of guest speakers from a diverse range of backgrounds, we will then discuss the documentary in light of the situation facing children in detention under Australian law.
The documentary is about the heartbreaking decision asylum seekers make to travel across the globe, putting their fate of their families in hands of strangers. Jessie Taylor and Ali Reza Sadiqi travelled across Indonesia and met with 250 asylum seekers in jail, detention centres and hostels. The story of the refugee is told through interviews, hidden camera footage and in the words of asylum seekers themselves.
(Young Buddies member Quinn has been asked to be a guest speaker, along with others, at the event.)
