About Screening: Chauka, Please Tell Us the Time
Filmed over a period of six months on a smuggled smartphone by Kurdish-Iranian refugee Behrouz Boochani,
Chauka, Please Tell Us the Time is a confronting glimpse into the lives of detainees inside the now closed Manus Island detention centre. The documentary takes its name from a tiny native bird and was also the name of a solitary confinement unit within the complex. An important part of Boochani’s work to raise public awareness about Australia’s inhumane treatment of refugees, this documentary is essential viewing for all Australians. Join Boochani for a special Q&A via video conference before the film.
