Refugee Film Festival Sydney - Screening + Q&A: Hope Road




A refugee from the Sudanese civil war, Zacharia (one of the ‘lost boys’ of Sudan) lives in Sydney, Australia, with his partner and daughter.  He desperately wants to do something for his village, now in the newly created nation of South Sudan.  His dream is to build a much-needed school, and he enlists the backing of numerous well-intentioned Australians.  Janet, a dedicated supporter, joins him on a 40-day charity walk from the Queensland border to Sydney to raise funds for this venture.  Will this strategy raise the funds they need? Thwarted by escalating conflict back in South Sudan, and shocked by a broken relationship, Zac must decide what’s important in his life.  

Hope Road was an official selection at the Melbourne International Film Festival and in competition at the Sydney Film Festival.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and other special guests.
