One of the most important films of 2016, Chasing Asylum tears back the curtain on Australia's brutal immigration policies. Directed by Eva Orner, the Oscar-winning producer of Taxi to the Darkside, this confronting documentary explores the human cost of mandatory detention, combining interviews with whistleblowers — who risked jail to speak out — and sickening hidden camera footage from inside detention centres on Manus and Nauru.

"I think we all need to stand up and say enough is enough," Orner told us in May. "I just read this thing where Malcolm Turnbull said, 'Let's not get misty-eyed about offshore detention.' People are lighting themselves on fire. Children are being sexually abused. People have died."

One Day Entertainment and the Factory Theatre are presenting a special screening of Chasing Asylum, with all proceeds from the night going to the Refugee Advice and Casework Service. Tickets are now sold out, but watch the Factory Theatre's Facebook page for announcements.
