Film notes

Vinyl is the story of an eighteen‐year‐old Sudanese refugee living with his parents and younger brother in a small housing estate apartment. They have escaped a war torn country and individually they are having trouble coming to terms with their new lives. The family is scarred by the loss of one son in the fighting and the disintegration of their country.

Set in the current cultural landscape of Australia, ‘Vinyl’ deals with some of the difficult realities refugees face in trying to adapt to a new way of life. The film highlights the strong sense of family and tradition that many refugees bring to their adopted countries. Refugee numbers are on the rise worldwide and their
integration is often a difficult and violent process.
