THE FREE WORLD > feature film screenplay


THE FREE WORLD (in development)

Written by Timothy Parish

THE FREE WORLD is based on the dramatic true story of a young man involved in the most unique prison breakout in Australia’s history. On Easter 2002, over a dozen refugees escaped the remote Woomera Detention Centre in the heart of the Australian desert.
The story follows one of these escapees, a young Iranian named AZIZ as he lives moment to moment as a fugitive in Australia, unable to plan for the future, isolated and alone. Although he has escaped prison, he is still not yet free. Only when he stops running, and confronts the forces that seek to imprison him does he find the freedom he has been seeking.

THE FREE WORLD is currently in development with the support of Screen Territory.
