Chauka calls: A photo essay
Film and Screen Media, University College Cork
This photo essay represents many of the major themes, feelings, people and critiques central to Chauka, Please Tell Us the Time (Behrouz Boochani and Arash Kamali Sarvestani, 2017). The images and commentary explore the role of Manusian people, culture and knowledge; the systematic torture designed for the imprisoned refugees; the colonial logic underlying Australia’s border politics; the positionalities and perspectives of the codirectors; and the collaborative nature of the film’s production and distribution.
