Journey Beyond Fear + Q&A: HRAFF GOES WEST

Robyn Hughan / Australia / 2018 / 99 mins / English / Documentary

“An excellent documentary…a genuinely moving experience. Apart from the strength and courage of the family members, which is self evident the patience of the filmmaker is commendable. This is journey well worth taking. 4/5 Stars.”
David Stratton, The Weekend Australian

Filmed over seven years, Journey Beyond Fear follows a family of Afghan refugees in Malaysia as they await eventual settlement in Australia. Unable to legally work or access education and healthcare, they battle poverty and rapidly declining mental health as they wait for Australia’s government bureaucracy to file and process their formal request for asylum, unsure if they’ll even live to see our shores. This film documents the inhumane, laborious and ineffectual standards in place for refugees hoping to avoid Australia’s offshore processing, showing how even the system for seeking asylum the “right way” is cruel, punitive and ultimately broken.
