MDA and BEMAC are celebrating Harmony Day with a charity movie screening of the acclaimed movie ‘The Good Lie’
Staring Reese Witherspoon and the Lost Boys of Sudan and directed by Ron Howard, the film follows the emotionally charged journey of three Sudanese refugees as they build a new life in America.
After their village is destroyed and their parents killed by Northern militia, Sudanese orphans Theo, his siblings and other survivors make a difficult journey to a refugee camp in Kenya. Thirteen years later, the group gets the chance to settle in the US.

Proceeds of the screening will go towards MDA’s Donate a Ride initiative, which is raising money to cover the transport cost for refugees are already giving back to their new community by volunteering their time and skills across Brisbane.
