Hope in Life
Hope in Life

This series of short documentaries was produced by young Hazaras in Melbourne and Kabul in collaboration with Melbourne filmmakers and media artists.

Hope in Life follows the aspirations of Hazaras who sought asylum in Australia and explores how their ties to their homeland influence and sustain them regardless of the challenges they face.

Migration tells the story of how the open sea both carried a Hazara family to refuge in Australia and afforded one of their sons a future in the surf.

A Hazaragi Wedding utilises family videos and memorabilia to trace the events leading up to and throughout a traditional wedding.

Between the Lines follows the journey of the Pakistan-based Sketch Club to a gallery in Collingwood where its first exhibition in Australia was hosted.

After the screening, meet the filmmakers and the producers and participate in a Q&A about the series and the media arts program these documentaries were developed from.
