Chauka, Please Tell Us The Time

Monday 30 October @ 8.15pm | Arc Cinema| $16/13

2017 | CTC | 90 mins| | D: Behrouz Boochani and Arash Kamali Sarvestani

Filmed on a mobile phone from inside Manus Island detention centre, journalist and Manus Island detainee, Behrouz Boochani, collaborated in secret with Iranian-Dutch filmmaker, Arash Kamali Sarvestani, to produce this film. The result offers audiences a rare glimpse into life behind the security gates for hundreds of asylum seekers currently held in indefinite detention. We are offered first hand accounts of mistreatment, intimidation and the psychological strain that many detainees experience day to day. As Tom Clift (Junkee Magazine) expressed “It’s impossible to sit through Chauka, Please Tell Us The Time without feeling an overwhelming sense of shame.” The film’s purpose is to provide a voice to the silenced perspectives of Manus Island detainees and we owe it to them to listen.
