"Remember one thing, we are human beings"
Hundreds of innocent refugees and asylum seekers faced more than six years captivity at the hands of the Australian Federal Government on Manus Island in Papua New Guinea: isolated, separated from their families and losing hope of ever being freed to start their lives over. Hear their stories.
MANUS was an Official Selection at numerous film festivals both in Australia and internationally receiving several Best Documentary and Best Director awards and nominations. MANUS also qualified for selection at the 2020 Academy Awards in the Documentary Short category.
MANUS was a collaborative project which could not be made without the committed efforts of Olivia Rousset, Behrouz Boochani, Jarrod McKenna, Father Dave Smith, and Abdul Aziz Muhammat, Nolan Verheij-Full, Manhaz Alimardanian.
We dedicate this film to all those who still remain held offshore on Nauru & in PNG and onshore at APODS and other detention centres across Australia.
