Cast from the Storm
Asfar, Maryam and Wiam face the usual challenges of navigating high school with one difference, they were forced to leave their home countries and everything they knew behind. Now in Australia, they must start not only a new school, in a new country, but also a new life.
The three teenagers join Treehouse Theatre – an after-school theatre group. Guided by three dedicated teachers, they enter into a community that supports them to share their personal stories. Their history is scripted and transformed into a moving stage performance.
This screening will be followed by a very special Q&A with the film-makers and cast.
