Come and celebrate Harmony Day with us at our screening of Constance on the Edge. A film about refugee resettlement and what it takes to belong.

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 Wagga Wagga, Australia.
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 belonging and enabling participation for everyone.
