Nowhere Line: Voices from Manus Island

An animated short film, narrated by two asylum-seeking men detained in Australia’s Manus Island Offshore Processing Centre, recounting the dangerous journeys that brought them to the island and their memories of the riot that erupted in 2014.

In July 2013, the Australian Government introduced a controversial immigration policy, transferring asylum seekers arriving by boat to remote offshore detention centres on foreign Pacific islands.

Seven months later, the Manus Island centre erupted in violence when police and guards put down protests with sticks, machetes and guns, and 23 year-old asylum seeker Reza Barati was killed.

This film contains recordings of conversations between Behrouz and Omar, who are currently detained on Manus Island.

Directed & Produced by Lukas Schrank • Character Artwork by Luke Bicevskis.
