Refugee documentary, ‘Constance on the Edge’, will screen at the Avoca Beach Picture Theatre on October 15.
The 80 minute documentary conveys positive messages about diversity and belonging through the story of Constance, a Sudanese refugee, attempting to transcend her past and transform her home town of Wagga Wagga into a friendlier place. The screening represents a unique opportunity for Central Coast residents to come together and participate in a conversation about welcoming refugees with fi lm director, Ms Belinda Mason, and producer, Ms Marguerite Grey, who will be in attendance.
The film premiered at the Sydney Film Festival in June and is being well received by audiences in regional NSW. Filmed over 10 years, ‘Constance on the Edge’ is an unflinchingly honest portrayal of one refugee family’s resettlement story in Australia. Brave, charismatic, mother of six, Constance confronts her painful past in war torn Sudan, and risks everything in Australia so her family can thrive.
