Filmed over 10 years, Constance on the Edge is an unflinchingly honest portrayal of one refugee family’s resettlement story in Australia. The film is an uplifting and moving portrayal of the journey to settlement in a new and unfamiliar country, and of the Australian communities that welcome people seeking safety
Constance on the Edge was an official selection at the Cinéfest Oz Film Festival and a finalist in the Australian Documentary category at the Sydney Film Festival this year.

Constance on the Edge + Q&A
Constance, a mother of six who has migrated to Australia, confronts her painful past in war torn Sudan, and risks everything in Australia so her family can thrive. Mary, Constance’s niece, finds it impossible to find a job. Vicky, her daughter, studies every morning from 4am, hoping to get into university. Charles, 23, is struggling with alienation and depression. Their stories weave together to create a contemporary, untold story about the courage and resilience it takes to build new lives.
