Horror of war, hope of freedom

Utopia is a  collection of unreliable narratives from Afghanistan where daily life is madness and only dreams of escape to paradise give hope.

Afghani writer and director Amir Musavi presents his first Australian work. Experimental and experiential, Utopia cuts across borders and cultures, repeating difficult events to find a solution.

Stagger into a minefield. See siblings demand the ultimate sacrifice. Watch a terrorist fall in love. Marvel as families embark on dangerous journeys to escape a hellish life.

Lit by torches, voiced by diverse actors… it’s complex, thrilling and not for the fainthearted.

Meet the artists!
