Eva Orner: asylum seekers and detention centres
BODY:
Kim Hill talks to Australian film director and producer Eva Orner, whose documentary Chasing Asylum, an exposé of the detention centres established by the Australian government on Nauru and Manus Island, will screen here during the New Zealand International Film Festival.
EXTENDED BODY:
Australia’s offshore detention centres for asylum seekers have been much criticised and they have been called some of the harshest in the world.
Both liberal and Labor parties are taking a hard line against asylum seekers, particularly those aboard boats. For three years now the latter have not been settled in Australia, but have been sent to detention centres on the islands of Manus, off Papua New Guinea and Nauru.
No journalist or cameras are allowed inside so all of the footage in the centres was obtained secretly for Australian director Eva Orner’s documentary Chasing Asylum.
Orner won an Oscar for her documentary Taxi to the Darkside a few years ago.
Chasing Asylum will screen here during the New Zealand International Film Festival.
Read an edited excerpt of their interview below:
How did you get the footage for the film?
Unfortunately the stuff was shot on Nauru and Manus islands was done secretly because of current legislation. I can’t talk about it. In a way, everyone wants to know how we got the footage when no one else has been able to, but I think what’s more important to talk about is that it is a criminal act to speak out or record footage on Manus or Nauru.
It became a criminal act in the process of making this didn’t it?
Yeah. It’s funny, when I look back on the film, it’s this impossible film to make in some ways, I don’t know how we did it. It’s about places you’re not allowed to go to, people you’re not allowed to speak to and halfway through the edit, it became about what we were doing becoming a criminal offence with two years’ jail time. As legislation dictates.
New legislation came out last July - our Border Force Protection Act and there’s this very odious clause in it known as the Whistle-blowing Clause that says if you’re a government employee on Manus or Nauru at the detention centres, which everyone is, and you speak out, that is a criminal offence.
I wanted to talk to you about that because you have not included some people’s faces in the interviews, but they are in fact clearly recognisable, or they would be for people who knew them or knew of them. How did you deal with that?
I think the absolute heroes of the film are the whistle-blowers and I am completely indebted and grateful to them. You have to look back over the last 15 years that this has been going on intermittently and so few people have spoken out.
The fact that these people have spoken out at all is extraordinary. I gave these people the option to show their faces or not. Some were working before the legislation came out, so it is unclear if they are technically at risk, but we and my lawyers, and they of course in collaboration with us, were comfortable showing their faces. The ones that didn’t show their faces were still working there or it was after the legislation came out.
I think in coming out, they didn’t want to do it in such a way that was really obviously defiant (so they wanted to shield themselves), but at the same time they wanted to show themselves. It was sort of this weird hybrid I think.
We all agreed, look, anyone who wanted to find them could find them, but we made the effort to obscure them without losing the emotion, because I think it’s important. You see the lower part of their faces and you see their lips tremble and you see them quiver and when they say things you can tell it’s truthful and I think that’s important.
You set out to make this obviously because you disagree with this offshore processing system. What was it in the course of making the documentary that shocked you most?
I think what shocks me still to the core is this legislation. I do find that it is quite extraordinary that there is this incredible policy of secrecy that is not really questioned or hasn’t been until quite recently. And that legislation can get passed in a democracy with so little resistance.
Where is our opposition? Where are our independent parties? Why isn’t the world reeling in horror at what we’re doing, because what we’re doing is extraordinary.
I also think the children situation is extraordinary. We’re the only country in the world to put children in indefinite detention.
What else did I think was shocking? Boy, there’s not a lot that isn’t shocking. I think the government’s reaction to things blows my mind. When I made the film, it was around the time that Reza Barati died, he was an Iranian man who was murdered in the riots there.
He was beaten to death by officers.
By Papua New Guinean and allegedly Australian guards. Who will never be brought back to trial because they fled the country immediately and Australia has never done anything to return them. But from eye witness accounts, they were involved. Picking up rocks and smashing them against his head as he died. But when he died, I thought, ‘Something has got to change, somebody’s died.’
And then, Hamid died, a young man who cut his foot and didn’t get medical care in time and had septicaemia and I thought, ‘Okay, something has to change.’ The amount of sexual abuse of women on Nauru, sexual abuse of children. Every time we hit a benchmark, I thought, ‘Something has got to change!’ and nothing changes.
Just before we released the film and the election was announced, two people self-emulated on Nauru and one died and I thought, ‘Well this has got to change something.’ And… nothing.
Our Prime Minister said, in response to two people self-immolating in Nauru, on our watch… and I quote him: “Let’s not get misty eyed.”
Now if we don’t get misty-eyed about asylum seekers coming here to seek asylum, in their right, under the Refugee Convention of which we are a signatory, and they kill themselves, and we don’t get a little teary, who have we become?

Panama Canal expansion
BODY:
An expanded Panama Canal, built to cope with today's mega container ships, opened for business last weekend. Walt Bogdanich of The New York Times has been in Panama looking at the building of the expanded canal and its future prospects.
EXTENDED BODY:
An expanded Panama Canal, built to cope with today's giant container ships, opened for business last weekend.
New locks on the route are now able to handle 365 metre long vessels carrying up to 14,000 containers. The move's been hailed by New Zealand exporters as way to keep costs down and our $49 billion export market competitive.
But the whole process has been beset by multi-billion dollar cost blowouts, delays, construction disputes and ongoing safety concerns. Meanwhile there's the prospect of a rival canal opening in nearby Nicaragua backed by Chinese investors, and the global shipping industry is experiencing its worst recession in half a century.
So what's the outlook for the new and improved Panama Canal and its ongoing role in world trade? Walt Bogdanich of The New York Times has won three Pulitzer prizes and has been in Panama looking at how the building of the expanded canal's been going.
'The consequences will be wide-ranging if the canal does not deliver as promised. American grain and soybean farmers and producers of liquefied natural gas, for example, may find it harder to sell to Asian customers. Asian manufacturers may forsake the struggling ports on America's East Coast for those in the West. Or they, and ultimately consumers, will shoulder the added cost of going the long way around, through the Suez Canal.' Walt Bogdanich in The New York Times

Underground beer pipeline
BODY:
A 3 kilometre underground beer pipeline's been built to protect the historic city centre of Bruges in Belgium. With Xavier Vanneste of De Halve Maan brewery.
EXTENDED BODY:
The Belgian city of Bruges was founded in 1128 and with its port and network of canals was called 'The Venice of the North' back when it was one of the most important business centres on the planet.
It's not quite so vital to global trade nowadays, but centuries of history and those canals, lovely old buildings and cobbled streets have made it a major tourist destination and UNESCO World Heritage Site.
All of which is really bad news if you have a small brewery in the city centre and need to transport 4 million litres of beer every year to a bottling plant 3 kilometres away on the outskirts of the city. Because narrow medieval cobbled streets and modern trucks and tankers are not a great mix.
So Xavier Vanneste of De Halve Maan brewery in Bruges had to get creative. He saw utility companies digging up the roads to lay wiring and drains and cables so he decided to build an underground beer pipeline...a bit like broadband, but for beer!

Helium find
BODY:
MRI scanners, welding, industrial leak detection, nuclear energy and party balloons; all uses for helium gas. But there have been worries about shortages of supply, growing demand and rising prices for a while now. That's why a massive discovery of helium reserves in Tanzania has been such big news this week because it uses a new more targeted way of finding the gas underground. Professor Christopher Ballentine at Oxford University led the team making the discovery, and he speaks to us from the conference in Japan where he revealed the news.
EXTENDED BODY:
A massive helium discovery in Tanzania will relieve short term supply constraints, as well as offering a new method to target and find the gas underground.
Helium is widely used in modern life, including for MRI scanners, welding, nuclear power generation and of course in the party planning sector. But there have been worries about shortages of supply, growing demand and rising prices for some years.
'We can apply this same strategy to other parts of the world with a similar geological history to find new helium resources. Excitingly, we have linked the importance of volcanic activity for helium release with the presence of potential trapping structures and this study represents another step towards creating a viable model for helium exploration. This is badly needed given the current demand for helium.' Dr Pete Barry, Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oxford

The find in East Africa is of at least 1.5 billion cubic metres of helium or just under seven times total global annual helium demand. That's enough helium to fill over 1.2 million MRI scanners, about 600,000 Olympic swimming pools, or sufficient to give every single person on Earth a squeaky voice for about 20 minutes.

Professor Christopher Ballentine at Oxford University led the team making the discovery.
'We sampled helium gas (and nitrogen) just bubbling out of the ground in the Tanzanian East African Rift valley...This is a game changer for the future security of society's helium needs and similar finds in the future may not be far away.'

Changes...
From Saturday 30 July, This Way Up will become a one hour show broadcast on RNZ from midday-1pm on Saturdays, with all of our stories and audio published online and available on Friday afternoons. You’ll also be hearing us crop up in a few new places around RNZ and online too.
Just to be clear the move from two to one hours is not budget-driven. Nor will we be working half as hard as we do now, as some colleagues have suggested!
In fact it’s great news for the programme as it lets us focus more on the kind of out-and-about audio storytelling we really love doing. So our stories will tend to be more focussed, in-depth, audio rich and location-based, with more of you and your stories in them!
So although we might have less air time, we won’t go changing. We’ll still be offering you the same quirky, distinctive, and curious take on New Zealand life - more slices of life for curious minds!

Broods' Georgia Nott on keeping conscious in La-La Land
BODY:
Broods have just released their sophomore effort, Conscious. On the line from their Los Angeles home base, Georgia Nott tells Yadana Saw about the intention behind the album name.
EXTENDED BODY:
Conscious is the new album. Conscious is the practice. On the line from their new Los Angeles base, Georgia Nott, one half of the sibling pop duo Broods, tells Yadana Saw how she and Caleb stay grounded and sane in what has been a whirlwind year for the Nelson brother and sister.
En route to an in-store performance whilst in the middle of tour rehearsal, Georgia Nott and I conveniently time a conversation for the exact length of the drive. I ask her if this is the new normal for someone in pop music ascendancy.
"At the moment, yes. Especially with the album release... but a lot of people who strive to be musicians don't get to be this busy, so we're really lucky to be run off our feet."
Since RNZ last spoke to Broods, when they won four Tuis at the 2015 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards, the duo have been touring Asia, North America, playing support for Ellie Goulding, and collaborating with artists such as YouTube wunderkind Troye Sivan.
It's a hectic lifestyle that saw siblings Caleb and Georgia relocate to Los Angeles earlier this year, allowing them to pursue opportunities such as their recent appearance on The Late, Late Show with James Corden.
In a recent interview with NZ Herald, Caleb explained that this would have never happened if they remained in Auckland, adding that the show's studios were 200m down the road from their LA digs. Their new location also exposed the siblings to the less-attractive aspects of the celebrity-obsessed city, as Georgia explains.
"There are so many people swept up in it... it just seems like it's a normal thing to feel like they deserve more than the average person."
Steadfast that this is not the direction for Broods as a band or as individuals, Georgia credits the brother-sister bond as the means by which they navigate the fickle and superficial pitfalls of the path they've chosen.
And so Conscious was a deliberate and obvious album name for Caleb and Georgia. I ask whether it was a mantra.
"Definitely. We did want to achieve a consciousness in everything we were doing and everything we plan to do for the rest of our lives."
The album sees the duo stretching themselves, embracing the more propulsive, bigger sound that has evolved from their stage act.
"Because we tour so much we wanted to create an album that would be awesome to play every night and that would give people something to remember."
Conscious also sees Broods extending beyond the familiar and growing in confidence, particularly production-wise, whereas last time "we relied on Joel a lot for our first album".
While Joel Little is still a key musical collaborator as executive producer, they've also penned tracks with Swedish singer-songwriter Tove Lo, Troye Sivan producer Alex Hope, and fellow Joel Little-produced antipodean Lorde. For Georgia, the lyrical content of Conscious is what she is most proud of.
The ability to remain grateful and humbled by Broods' achievements is fundamental, giving her the strength to stay true to her and Caleb's ambitions, she says.
"As soon as it becomes something we think we're entitled to, I don't think we'd be the people we are anymore... it's not the kind of people we want to be, you'd miss out on too much."
With that, Georgia tells me she's arrived at her destination - and, it seems, perhaps in more ways than one.

Nick D’s insatiable appetite for new sounds has made him one of this country’s most well-travelled music minds, continually leaving his current base in Tokyo to take a very hands-on approach to music discovery.
Two of his most fertile sources of new music in recent years have been India and Pakistan. Ahead of Weird Night Out, a party his globally-minded dance music collective Weird Together are throwing on Friday 1 July, Nick presents a primer on Pakistani and Indian electronic music.
