How I Became a Refugee Film Screening + Panel Discussion with Producer

Bayside Refugee Week Event - How I Became a Refugee Film Screening

How I Became a Refugee is a documentary film that follows the extraordinary journey of a Burmese Chin refugee family from their homeland where they escaped religious persecution from the military government through to Malaysia before being resettled in Perth, Western Australia.

What makes a family leave their home? What does it mean to search for home?

Come and join us for this great family event and enjoy some felafel upon arrival (included in price of ticket).

The documentary film screening will be followed by a panel discussion with filmmaker, Dr Marilyn Metta and two people with lived refugee experience before the event draws to a close at 8.30pm.
