Mardi Alexander Book Launch

Charlie Dickerson is desperate to get away from small-town minds and all the painful reminders of her ex. What better way than to travel halfway around the world? A wildlife rescue exchange program in Australia looks like the perfect solution to her current predicament. Pip Atkins has an innate affinity for wildlife, but people are another story. When she’s tasked with looking after an American wildlife carer on a work exchange, the thought of someone shadowing her every move for twelve whole months represents the ultimate nightmare. Worlds apart, but forced together, Charlie and Pip struggle to find a middle ground, as they discover they have more in common than they think.

NON VIOLENCE FILM FESTIVAL 1-5 MAY 2017 PROGRAM, PEACE STUDIES - UNE

SWING KIDS, 1993 (110 mins) 

It’s 1939 and Nazi Germany has declared war on freedom, demanding conformity from its youth. But a group calling themselves ‘Swing Kids’ rebel with the ‘swing’ music from America and dare to stand up against the powerful forces around them. Each member of the group is forced to face some tough choices about right, wrong, and survival. Featuring Christian Bale and Barbara Hershey, SWING KIDS, is an inspirational and powerful story about finding the courage to fight for what you believe in. 

All films are FREE and begin at 1 pm. This is a School of Humanities initiative. With a focus on youth, this year’s festival is an opportunity to meet like-minded people and discuss important issues facing the world today.
