One family. Two wars. Three countries. What does it take to forge a new life far from home? The message of Harmony Day is everyone belongs.
Manning Valley Neighbourhood Services would like to invite the community to celebrate Harmony Day with a free screening of Constance on the Edge on the March 21 at 6pm at the Manning Regional Art Gallery.
Constance on the Edge is a film about refugee resettlement and what it takes to belong. Filmed over 10 years, Constance on the Edge is an unflinchingly honest portrayal of one refugee family’s resettlement story in the regional town of Wagga Wagga.
The film shows the courage and resilience it takes to build new lives.
Migrant Settlement worker Jane O’Dwyer said: “the purpose of showing the film is to get people thinking and talking about refugee resettlement in regional areas and what are some of the things that could help to make refugees and migrants feel like they belong in our community.”
After the viewing the audience will be invited to take part in an informal discussion about the film and refugee resettlement.
