Storyline

Nowhere Line: Voices from Manus Island is an animated short film, which tells the stories of two men, currently detained in Australia's notorious Manus Island Offshore Processing Centre. In October 2014, director Lukas Schrank made phone contact with the men who were able to tell their stories from within the compound. Their interviews offer a chilling insight into the reality of life for the 2000 people currently being held in Australia's offshore detention centres Their stories are the voice of the film, guiding the animation through the backstreets of Jakarta, across the sea and deep into the fenced facility of the Manus Island Regional Processing Centre.

It is easy to write about animation and force of message and politic, democracy values . But, after its end, you know - nothing to write. It is a film about a dark place, about people from nowhere, about an island, a sort of prison, about deep loneliness, about powerless authorities and about freedom. About a bitter truth . Not easy to accept, not easy to ignore it. Because it is a precise map of the limits, about old realities who are , always, present in the near reality of everyday. Short- a film who you must see. Why ? The answer is only yours.
