In conjunction with the 21st Biennale of Sydney, MCA are pleased to present two screenings of the documentary, Chauka, Please Tell Us the Time (2017) on 6–8pm, Wednesday 18 April and 2–4pm, Sunday 22 April (tickets below).

Detained on Manus Island, journalist Behrouz Boochani is determined that his narrative will not get reinterpreted and lost within history. Boochani secretly captured footage on his mobile phone, sending it across the world to be shaped into a film.

The film ties to this year’s Biennale theme, SUPERPOSITION: Equilibrium & Engagement, which examines notions around conflicting ideas across all levels of humanity. It looks at different cultures; readings of nature and the universe; political ideologies and systems of government; and interpretations of human history.

The Wednesday 18 April screening will be followed by a Q&A with Ian Rintoul. Ian is an Australian political activist and was a founding member of the Refugee Action Coalition in 1999, actively campaigning to shift public opinion, oppose mandatory detention and offshore processing, and campaign for refugees to be welcomed in Australia.
