In Freedom Stories, filmmaker Steve Thomas explores the achievements and struggles of a number of former ‘boat people'. Now Australian citizens, they arrived from the Middle East seeking asylum, around 2001. This was the year of the Tampa and PM John Howard's infamous "We will decide" speech. Some were only children when they found themselves in indefinite mandatory detention in Woomera or Nauru. Thomas captures the determination and resilience of this diverse group, who, a decade on, have rebuilt their lives in Australia. These are ordinary people, caught up in traumatic times, and in this poignant film their voices are finally heard.

This film was nominated for the Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Australian Documentary
