Cast From the Storm
Directed by: David Mason
Release Date: October 2015
Did you know?: This is David Mason’s filmmaking debut after working for the Seven network for five years as a director and producer in On-Air promotions.
After fleeing war and persecution in the Middle East, many teenagers find themselves facing a brand new stage — beyond the horror they’ve endured along the way, high-school in Sydney, Australia, is a vastly different challenge. Yet with the help of an innovative theatre program, a unique opportunity awaits.
When a group of survivors hailing from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Afghanistan and Serbia meet after-school to share their incredible personal experiences, they each realise they are not alone. As they confront their darkest memories, a powerful transformation begins.
Revealing “Storm Stories” — the stories that made them refugees — and mastering them for the stage, is a cathartic yet problematic process, and the group face a range of disasters on opening night. Steering the ship are three passionate teachers under enormous pressure to provide every child with a bright future.
Cast from the Storm provides a raw and intimate insight into this turbulent and deeply moving journey. As the curtains are raised, silence descends. For some students, this will be the performance of their lives. (Source: http://www.castfromthestorm.com)
