The staging post


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.

A truly moving piece of cinema. Nick Valentine

Uplifting and truly unforgettable. Philippa Byers

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


News & Updates




The Staging Post is a real-life, real-time, multi-platform documentary, and the story has a long way to go yet.

While some of the refugees have been resettled, most are still stuck in Indonesia. We have already started filming the next 'episode' of The Staging Post, with an expected release date in early 2019.
