    Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.

    Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.

    A 52-MINUTE DOCUMENTARY LOOKING AT THE CIRCUMSTANCES AND DECISIONS THAT LEAD SOMEONE TO BECOME A ‘BOAT PERSON’.

    When she was 9, Zainab’s parents made the heartbreaking decision to leave their home in northern Afghanistan.

    They set out on a journey across the globe, putting the fate of their family in the hands of strangers.

    Across borders, behind bars and onto a smuggler’s boat – the family chased freedom.

    ‘Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea’ tells Zainab’s story, and the story of many others who have trodden the same path.

    Jessie Taylor and Ali Reza Sadiqi travelled across Indonesia and met with 250 asylum seekers in jails, detention centres and hostels.

    Through candid interviews, hidden camera footage and in the words of asylum seekers themselves, the story of the ‘refugee’ is told.

    What pushes people to leave home?

    What do they leave behind?

    What do they fear?

    Why did they choose this path?

    And what does it take to turn someone into a ‘boat person’?

    Meet the human faces behind the most controversial issue of our time.

    Family ? all the illegal immigrant boats I see are full of grim nasty looking men.
    They leave the family of 12 children behind to their fate .
    Chased thier freedom at the expense of ours .
    They and thier lazy violent greedy scummy ancestors made thier country an abject shithole and slowly but surely they will turn the west into the same .

    First thing they do after been granted asylum catch the next flight home right back to the place where they are supposed to be in mortal danger, to brag about thier life on easy street poncing of the hard work of westerners .

    There are some genuine refugees in the world who need help, and a haven should be given to them until its safe for them to return home, which, if they were decent people they would do , because that would free up room in the West for the next needy refugee and also create good will and a positive image of thier kind .
    Instead they never return even if thier homelands becomes safe ,
    why ?
    because they just don't have that kind of dignity.

    These bogus refugees give the real ones a bad name
    Sink thier ships, before these devils ruin the west .
