BEHROUZ is a feature documentary telling the story of award-winning Kurdish journalist and writer Behrouz Boochani. He fled the Iranian regime, seeking asylum in Australia in 2013, only to be exiled to the offshore immigration detention centre on the remote Manus Island in Papua New Guinea. 

The film directed by Simon V Kurian, follows Behrouz as he navigates the life in detention, and leads the resistance to indefinite detention. And finally, his life in Christchurch, New Zealand as a free man, after over 6 years of detention on Manus Island. 

This event will include a Post Screening Q & A via live link with Behrouz Boochani and the film’s director Simon V Kurian. 

“This film is about a long struggle to expose and challenge a system which is designed to dehumanise people who flee dictatorship and war”.- Behrouz Boochani
