#507 Border Farce
This week, an exploration on coping with and processing trauma through the creation of art.
Before being brought to Australia, refugee Kazem Kazemi was detained on Manus Island for six years. The ordeal was brutal, dealing with abusive guards, friends passing away and more. Throughout it all, the ability to play and listen to heavy metal music is what kept him afloat.
Safdar Ahmed, someone similarly bolstered by heavy metal, tells this story and describes the connection he made with Kazem through music.
