It is Australia 1952, and a group of New Australians, migrants from devastated post-war Europe, awaits release from the limbo of life in an Australian migrant camp. Recent rioters have burnt down camp buildings, triggering armoured intervention by the army. Powerless, the migrants wage war against the camp administration, each other and themselves. Based on actual events at Bonegilla, the most famous of all migrant camps, “Midway to Nowhere” tells a chapter in Australia’s history.
Written and directed by George Bjukic, a local. Produced by Martin Coghlan.
