Clip description

Dallas and Zabi are getting married. The couple met when Dallas, a law student, was teaching Zabi English. Zabi is a refugee survivor of the MV Tampa and Nauru. Scenes of the wedding are shown, including some of the Afghan refugees dancing with their lawyer Julian Burnside QC. Later in the scene, Burnside observes that if you could ‘spread this love across Australia, all of our problems would go away in a moment’.

Curator’s notes

Anthem is an overwhelming and at times bleak view of our times. This scene is a celebration that provides a glimpse of some of the many positive cultural exchanges that have occurred between Australians and refugees living in the community. Later in the film, Newman narrates that Zabi is living on a Temporary Protection Visa (TPV), but that he hopes to stay and build a new life.
