RFF: Constance on the Edge
One family. Two wars. Three countries. What does it take to forge a new life far from home? Filmed over 10 years, CONSTANCE ON THE EDGE is an unflinchingly honest portrayal of one refugee family’s resettlement story in Australia.
Brave, lion-hearted, charismatic Constance, mother of six, confronts her painful past in war torn Sudan, and risks everything in Australia so her family can thrive. Mary, Constance’s niece, finds it impossible to find a job. Vicky, her daughter, studies every morning from 4am, hoping to get into university. Charles, 23, is struggling with alienation and depression.
CONSTANCE ON THE EDGE gets to the heart of a contemporary untold story about the courage and resilience it takes to build new lives. The film also highlights the important role communities play in encouraging a sense of welcoming, healing and belonging.
Join us after the film for a special Q&A with the one and only Constance Okot herself!
