Synopsis

DURATION: 90 MINUTES

When a small community of refugees in Indonesia decided to start a school, it transformed their lives and inspired a refugee-led education revolution in Indonesia.

That education revolution continues today. It created a community and has led to remarkable and unexpected successes around the world.

The Staging Post 2 will continue to follow these ever-widening ripples of connection, community and hope.

Issue Summary

A short summary of the issue the documentary is addressing

The Staging Post provides the opportunity for Australians and refugees living-in-transit to build a borderless community, and create two-way education opportunities.

Impact

What is the impact vision statement of the documentary?

Refugees can be part of the solution. Even if a community is weak, still they can do something.

Outcomes

What outcomes does the project hope to achieve from making this documentary?

The Staging Post documentary was an integral part in inspiring a refugee-led education revolution and creating a borderless community between Australians and refugees living in transit. It changed UNHCR policy in Indonesia and helps to support education opportunities for over 2000 refugees living in transit.

We have screened the film at hundreds of school and university events, providing the opportunity for Australians to meet the people they have heard about endlessly via media and politics but, more often than not, have never met.

Stakeholders

How will partnerships with this project help inform the project development?

We have partnerships with many refugee advocacy organisations, community groups, universities, schools and multi-lateral agencies. They help us to present the film to audiences, and we use the film to highlight refugee capacity and to include refugee voices in policy dialogues.

We have started an Australian registered Public Benevolent Institution, Cisaura Learning Ltd, to support and grow the refugee-led education revolution in Indonesia and around the world.

The star of the film, Muzafar Ali, is the recipient of the 2019 John Gibson Refugee Community Leadership Grant, the Refugee Council of Australia’s Refugee Ambassador for Refugee Week 2019, and Australia’s refugee representative for the Annual Tripartite Consultations on Resettlement (ATCR) with the UNHCR in Geneva in 2019.

Audience Engagement and Social Impact

What actions does this project hope for its viewers after seeing this film?

We hope they will follow and support the refugee-led education revolution in Indonesia on social media.

Measurement and Evaluation

What is the projects indicators for success?

We have two goals. One is to accompany the refugees in transit for as long as they need. The second is to provide the opportunity for Australians to connect directly with the refugees and to create education opportunities.

Ultimately we hope that this will create a well-informed and empathetic mainstream Australia and that it will influence the leaders-of-tomorrow to review Australia's refugee policies.
