Beyond Refuge: Dialogues features five cinema poems by Australian artists who share a refuge/asylum seeker experience.
Beyond Refuge is CuriousWorks’ three-year creative development program for artists who seek to change the asylum seeker narrative by defining on their own terms what they would like to say and how they would like to say it. Small film teams led by Ali Al Azeez, Ali Mousawi, Elham BehinAein, Daisy Montalvo and Samia Halabi have developed the artists’ original ideas into five unique video and photo-media works that tell stories of parallel lives, family and time passing.
