‘Mary meets Mohammed’ is a documentary film following the arrival of Tasmania’s 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.

Following the screening of the film, we will engage in a captivating discussion about how the story has enabled viewers to engage with a volatile political issue through the powerful messages depicted in ‘Mary meets Mohammed’.
