ICOG/UG has the honour to be the first to screen the documentary Chauka, Please tell us the time (2017) in the Netherlands.

This urgent and powerful documentary was shot in a detention centre where asylum seekers trying to reach Australian shores are indefinitely detained. Secretly shot on a mobile phone by Iranian journalist and writer Behrouz Boochani while detained on Manus, in Papua New Guinea, the film is a collaboration with Dutch-Iranian filmmaker Arash Kamali.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the directors.
