The documentary 'Constance on the Edge' will be screened in Eden.

A ration dinner and movie night will be held in Eden on Friday, June 23, as part of Refugee Week.

Share a simple meal, like what refugees would eat in a Jordanian refugee camp, and watch the movie ‘Constance on the Edge’.

’Constance on the Edge’ tells the story of Constance, a charismatic mother-of-six as she confronts her painful past in war torn Sudan and risks everything in Australia so her family can thrive. 

Filmed over 10 years in Wagga Wagga, the documentary is an unflinchingly honest  portrayal of one  refugee family’s resettlement story in regional Australia.  

“In Africa I was fighting for survival; in the refugee camp I was fighting for human rights; and here in Australia I'm fighting for belonging," Constance says. 

The ration dinner and movie night starts at 6pm in the Uniting Church Hall, Chandos St, Eden.
