The extraordinary story of Behrouz Boochani, the man who won Australia's richest literary award but remains unable to set foot in this country. The stateless refugee, who's in detention on Manus Island, smuggled out his entire book text by text on a smuggled mobile phone.
In January 2019, Boochani's book 'No Friend But the Mountains' won the $100,000 Victorian Prize for Literature. Born during the Iran-Iraq war and suffering persecution as a Kurd in his homeland, Boochani fled Iran, seeking refuge in Australia. Arriving on Christmas Island four days after the government toughened its stance on refugees arriving by boat, he was taken to Manus Island where he has remained for five years.
This is the story of determination to celebrate life, even when virtually all hope of escaping a hellish situation has been dashed.
Australian Story: The Invisible Man is also available for 7-day rental and 1-year rental.
