The Staging Post follows two Afghan Hazara refugees, Muzafar and Khadim. Stuck in Indonesia after Australia 'stopped the boats' and facing many years in limbo, they built a community and started the school which inspired a refugee education revolution.

A real-life, real-time, multi-platform documentary. The Staging Post is about friendship, connection and the power of community.

Lifts the spirit; Packed with positivity, potential, possibility, patience, hope, community, cooperation, love and friendship. - Anne Hilton

Inspirational. A reminder of what is possible when people work together to turn away from fear towards hope. - Anni Webster

Your work is beautiful and shows exactly the kind of message we would like people to hear, refugees as resilient, contributing members of society. - Susan Bird, UNHCR Thailand

The Staging Post 2 is currently set for a mid-2020 release! Help them fund it!

Statement by filmmaker Jolyon Hoff:

"We have never stopped filming the community in Cisarua and we will release another film in June, 2020. Please meet some of the new characters in the video [here]. If you would like to support us with a tax-deductible donation, you can do that via the Documentary Australian Foundation.
