A Well Founded Fear

I just discovered the web page for this new film, which documents the fates of asylum seekers whose applications were denied by authorities in Australia. The film takes as its premise the pertinent question - What becomes of such individuals when they are deported to their home countries? (Thanks to APiA)
Update: And now I am told by a former student Emily Hickey - who's gone off to make good in the world - that the folks at PBS here in the states produced a documentary of the same name a few years back. This film deals with asylum hearings in here in the U.S. ~ you can find the web page here.
