a well founded fear

What has happened to the many refugees Australia sent back to Afghanistan? Are they still alive? Phil Glendenning director of the Edmund Rice centre follows the stories of refugees who Australia deemed safe to return home. For many of these people, their stories are chilling.

“A Well Founded Fear” is about the Edmund Rice Centre’s research into the fate of deported asylum seekers. The centre’s director Phil Glendenning believes that if Australia doesn’t monitor what happens to the people they deport, they won’t know if they are making the right decisions. The documentary explores what motivates Glendenning to do what no one else in the world does as he makes contact with the asylum seekers Australia didn’t want, the people that immigration officials didn’t believe had a ‘well-founded fear’ of persecution. His work takes him to dangerous war-torn countries.
