Beyond Refuge is a short film about Fairfield's Cambodian community and the conversation between young people and their parents.
Beyond Refuge: Flashback is the film-making debut for Cabramatta local Sean Ly, in which he goes on a journey of personal discovery to learn and record the previously unshared story of his parents – refugees from Cambodia who settled in Western Sydney in the 1980s.
Through interviews as a mother and father speaking to their son, they recall past experiences and share flashbacks of displacement and resettlement. The 25-minute film includes a soundtrack with original music contributed by Channthy Kak, lead singer from the international music sensation 'The Cambodian Space Project'.
