A documentary short about two remarkable Kurdish Iranian asylum seekers, both musicians and artists, long imprisoned on Manus Island, use their voices in the struggle against the Federal Government’s inhumane refugee policy.
Farhad Bandesh and Mostafa Azimitibar were finally freed from detention after being imprisoned for almost eight years under Australia’s brutal offshore processing regime. Each fled persecution in Iran, searching for safety, freedom and a brighter future, only to be treated callously by the Australia government. Forming a close friendship while detained, they used music and art as a form of peaceful resistance to promote humanity and tirelessly advocate on behalf of all those who remained held. Australian artist Angus McDonald’s passionate documentary, whilst not shying away from the brutality of their experience, embraces their extraordinary resilience and optimism.
