Film screening: The Staging Post

12 September 2017

A presentation by Sydney School of Education and Social Work's Comparative and International Education (CoInEd) research network in partnership with the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre.

This film follows two Afghan Hazara refugees, Muzafar and Khadim. Stuck in Indonesia after Australia 'stopped the boats' and facing many years in limbo, they built a community and started the Cisarua Refugee Learning Centre (CRLC), a school which inspired a refugee education revolution. This is a real-life, real-time documentary about friendship, connection and the power of community. The screening will be followed by a Q and A with the film's director and producer, Jolyon Hoff, and Muzafar Ali, the subject of the film and founder of the Cisarua Refugee Learning Centre.

  • Speakers: Jolyon Hoff is an Australian filmmaker. Fascinated by subcultures, identity, and community, he has made films on subjects as varied as a schizophrenic Australian surfing icon; an eccentric football fan whose fame surpassed that of his team; American computer programmers creating virtual-reality gaming worlds; tsunami survivors in Aceh, Indonesia; and traditional kings, chiefs and Yoruba rituals in Nigeria. His work explores identity, place and belonging within a community, as well as the role of heroes, rituals and story in binding communities together.

    Muzafar Ali worked for the United Nations in Afghanistan for seven years, to try to strengthen democracy, foster human rights and support women and other civil society organisations. During two years as a refugee, Muzafar, with the help of other refugee friends, established a refugee-run school known as the Cisarua Refugee Learning Centre. The school is still functional and currently provides education for more than 100 refugee children. Musafar regularly raises his voice to advocate on refugee issues on various platforms.
