Constance On the Edge Smiling

Please join us for a free and intimate screening of the documentary - Constance On The Edge - that recently premiered at the Sydney Film Festival.

One family. Two wars. Three countries. What does it take to forge a new life far from home?

Filmed over 10 years, Constance On The Edge is an unflinchingly honest portrayal of one refugee family’s resettlement story in Australia. Brave, lion-hearted, charismatic Constance, mother of six, confronts her painful past in war torn Sudan, and risks everything in Australia so her family can thrive.

Constance On The Edge gets to the heart of a contemporary untold story about the courage and resilience it takes to build new lives. The film also highlights the important role communities play in encouraging a sense of belonging and enabling participation for everyone. See the trailer here. **Rated M.
