Freedom is Beautiful

Freedom is Beautiful Panel Discussion

Overview

Join award winning artist and film maker Angus McDonald, human rights activist Craig Foster, along with musician and artist Mostafa Azimitabar in conversation about the making of the film Freedom is Beautiful.

Freedom is Beautiful is featured in our current exhibition Settled/Unsettled. This powerful film follows the journey of two extraordinary Kurdish refugees, Farhad Bandesh and Mostafa (Moz) Azimitabar, who were finally freed from detention after being imprisoned for almost eight years under Australia’s brutal offshore processing regime. Each fled persecution in Iran, searching for safety, freedom and a brighter future. Forming a close friendship while detained, they used music and art as a form of peaceful resistance to promote humanity and tirelessly advocate on behalf of all those who remained held.

Beautifully told in their own words, Freedom is Beautiful is an uplifting story of the power of love and our shared humanity.

The film is co-produced by McDonald and French film producer Mélita Toscan Du Plantier, best known for Masaan (2015) and In the Fade (2017), both award winners out of Cannes. The film is supported by Amnesty International and executive produced by Craig Foster, who also features.

This event is proudly sponsored by our friends at Hungerford Hill and Heaps Normal.
