Pacific Solution

Television (Excerpts) – 2005

This film tells the story of a group of Afghani refugees rescued from the high seas off Australia by the freighter, Tampa. It follows the fate of several boys who were given the chance of a fresh start in New Zealand. Deftly blending observational sequences and historical footage, Pacific Solution examines the socio-politicial context of a growing worldwide refugee crisis. It was filmed in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Australia, Nauru and New Zealand. Pacific Solution was screened by TVNZ and at festivals internationally. 

When I said "Hello Dad" and he said "hello" I was nearly crying because I was very excited and very happy to talk to him and to hear his voice.
– Habib Husseini (subject)
