Aussies in Hollywood

Eva Orner


Emmy and Academy Award winning producer and director, Eva Orner has taken us behind the walls of Guantanamo Bay, Nauru and Manus Island detention centres with her eye opening documentaries 'Taxi to the Dark Side' and 'Chasing Asylum'. Jenny Cooney talks to Melbourne born Eva about the risks she faces making films in such volatile locations, the importance of bringing political issues into the public consciousness, even if it means endangering her life, and how  telling stories in a way that is also social activism wasn't Eva's original intention when becoming a film maker.
