Refugee fam­ily’s story on re­build­ing a life

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

ONE fam­ily, two wars, three coun­tries – what does it take to be­long?

It’s the ques­tion posed by Con­stance on the Edge, a film with an un­flinch­ingly hon­est de­pic­tion of one refugee fam­ily’s re­set­tle­ment story in Aus­tralia.

The City of Bel­mont, Town of Vic­to­ria Park and the Hu­man­i­tar­ian Group are host­ing a free screen­ing of Con­stance on the Edge for Refugee Week on Fri­day, June 23, at Read­ing Cine­mas from 6 to 7.30pm.

The film gets to the heart of the courage and re­silience it takes to build a new life, and high­lights the im­por­tant role com­mu­ni­ties play in en­cour­ag­ing a sense of wel­com­ing, heal­ing and be­long­ing. Book your free ticket at con­stanceon-theedge.eventbrite.com.au.
