FALLING FOR SAHARA (FILM)

Three young African refugees in Melbourne’s inner-west find that love is never simple - especially when they all have eyes for the same girl.
Beniam, Remzi and MJ are best friends. Hanging out at the Flemington housing commission flats they call home, the three Africans share a tight bond and a love of footy. But with the arrival of Sahara - smart, beautiful and AFL-mad - the three friends suddenly find themselves competing for the same girl.
Director Khoa Do co-wrote Falling for Sahara with his cast of African-Australian actors, refugees recently arrived from Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sudan and Somalia.
A tireless advocate for refugees and at-risk youth in Australia, Do was awarded Young Australian of the Year in 2005. Falling for Sahara is the second film in his ‘refugee trilogy’.
 
MIFF recommends: Age 14+Some adult themes, mild violence and coarse language
