Detention from the inside.

Globally, there is no more urgent issue than the plight of asylum seekers and refugees. CHASING ASYLUM – created by Academy Award-winning Australian director Eva Orner is an ambitious, moving and confronting documentary that explores this issue in-depth. The film features never-before-seen footage of off-shore detention centres on Nauru and Manus Island, revealing the conditions asylum seekers are living in.

Right now, there are 60 million displaced people in the world – that’s one in every 122 humans that are either a refugee, internally displaced or seeking asylum. CHASING ASYLUM is an important documentary that brings to light the human impact of this global issue.
