A moving story from inside Australia’s Guantánamo: Christmas Island. On this island, 50 million red land crabs make their annual migration from the jungle to the sea. The same jungle hides a highsecurity Australian detention centre where thousands of asylum seekers have been locked away indefinitely. Their only connection to the outside world is trauma counsellor Poh Lin Lee. Screening courtesy of HOME Artist Film.
