Stop the Boats. The three words that have distorted the very meaning of asylum seeking in Australia..
'Stop the Boats tells the story of asylum seekers who arrive in Australia by boat set apart and now summarily rejected by a policy that challenges their very definition and reason. It looks at a national conversation that wonders how Australia got to this point so far removed from the international convention for refugees it signed in 1954. Asylum seekers and refugees recount their experiences of asylum seeking, of their flights from war, about the twilight zone of statelessness'.
