GRAMNet Film Series

Wednesday 11th October 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Launch of the 2017/2018 GRAMNet/BEMIS Film Series. Full programme available here.

Constance on the Edge
Australia (2016) | Director: Belinda Mason | 77 mins

One family. Two wars. Three countries. What does it take to forge a new life far from home?

Filmed over 10 years, Constance on the Edge is an unflinchingly honest portrayal of one refugee family’s resettlement story in Australia.

Brave, lion-hearted, charismatic Constance, mother of six, confronts her painful past in war torn Sudan, and risks everything in Australia so her family can thrive.

Mary, Constance’s niece, finds it impossible to find a job. Vicky, her daughter, studies every morning from 4am, hoping to get into university. Charles, 23, is struggling with alienation and depression.

Constance on the Edge gets to the heart of a contemporary untold story about the courage and resilience it takes to build new lives. The film also highlights the important role communities play in encouraging a sense of belonging and enabling participation for everyone.

 

The audience is warmly invited to join us in the CCA cafe following the screening for a drink and to continue our informal discussion session.
