Chasing Asylum, Eva Orner: #10 2020

Printed page doco on how a film doco is made, also part memoir.
The author is clearly passionate about the topics she chooses for her documentaries, and must be extraordinarily brave to chase these stories down in difficult situations and dangerous parts of the world.
Candid view of how this topic – Australia’s treatment of Asylum seekers – had an emotional impact on her and the rest of the film-making crew.
In some instances, such as handling of passports and visa, Australia seems to be operating in the same way as those countries the asylum seekers have been trying to escape.
Great book, but I will be letting it back into the wild in the hope that others read this copy.
