Inside Bamiyarra

Inside Bamiyarra is a snapshot biopic of a media arts project that brought together a young team of Hazara from refugee backgrounds to work with Melbourne artists and filmmakers. They produced micro-docs, a photo essay and a video installation much of which was inspired by a poem composed by a young Hazara living in Kabul.

Bamiyarra was a media arts project of Homelands, a collaboration between La Trobe University, Swinburne University of Technology, City of Melbourne and the Cultural Development Network. Home Lands was funded by an Australian Research Council Linkage Grant, City of Melbourne and the Cultural Development Network.
