Inside Manus

A graphic novel-style VR documentary directed by Lucas Taylor, with Tiltbrush artwork by SUTU and produced by Nathan Mayfield, Tony Jackson and Kerrin McNeil.

Inside Manus combines the powerful testimony of refugees held in Australia’s Manus Island immigration detention centre, with the immersive power of virtual reality storytelling. The experience transports you behind the razor-wire of Australia’s secretive offshore processing regime to hear the stories of three detainees told in their own voices and in their own words.

Inside Manus has been commissioned by SBS with support from Screen Queensland as part of their Untold Australia series, which offers uniquely personal stories from some of Australia’s diverse communities.
