Join the Amnesty International Tuggeranong Action group for a movie night!
We will be showcasing the multi-award-winning Australian
documentary film Mary Meets Mohammad.
This film follows the arrival of Tasmania’s first detention centre through the eyes of local Christian woman and knitting club member Mary and Muslim Afghan Hazara asylum seeker Mohammad, who is detained inside the centre, as they connect through the gift of a knitted beanie.
SBS reviewed Mary Meets Mohammad as ‘an intimate touching account of an unlikely friendship’ 3 and a half stars.
Mary Meets Mohammad was also a finalist in the prestigious 2013 Walkley Award for exceptional Australian journalism.
“Mary Meets Mohammed is a timely and relevant story told with great sensitivity and subtlety. The judges were unanimous in their support for this documentary, as it showcases the tenacity and skill of the filmmaker in her capture of a charming narrative that unfolds to reveal a confronting and nuanced relationship – one that is both unexpected and profound in its depiction of personal transformation. Mary Meets Mohammed allows viewers to engage in a humane way with a volatile political issue.”
The movie screening is free and light refreshments will be provided on the night.
