"I can’t remember my father’s face. We don’t have photos.  I only have my memory. My father had a farm, six and a half acres. In the summertime we grew chillies and beans and in the monsoon season we grew rice. In the summertime we came back home in the dark, at nine o’clock, or even midnight. We don’t have a light there but when the moon is shining you can work by the moon."

In a tale of want & uncertainty, the big concept is grace. 
Beauty can be enough.

Lotus flowers painted for the 8/14 update of the Instagram documentary 'She Called Me Red' at @sbs.online.documentaries, telling of Rohingya refugee Yunus's work at a nursery whilst on a tenuous temporary visa in Melbourne.

This title treatment was the first task I tackled for this Instagram documentary on @sbs.online.documentaries .
Yunus explains his grandma's nickname for him by translating it from 'Lalaya'. "She Called Me Red."
.
He wants to work professionally as an English - Burmese translator, and he wants to communicate his community's experiences for a wider audience - the struggles of the most persecuted minority group in the world's largest refugee camp.
.
The tensions in assimilating in Australia and connecting in an alien language were what I presented in this title.
.
This title is written in simple English, but its visual basis is in the history of the Rohingya people and language.
.
The Burmese alphabet with its circular forms, developed to prevent tearing in the palms leaves letters were carved in, the  brushwork of Arabic script, and the letters of the Latin alphabet.
.
The cloth was animated by Mila Nery.

Telling refugee stories, I'm confronted with the challenge of proposing to audiences that the heros of their stories can be characters don't embody power fantasies that we're broadcast - the most superheroic, strongest, criminally clever, seductive. Instead, they deserve to be the most vulnerable, the most in need of help, who have endured greater persecution than we'd perhaps want to fix our attention to in our entertainment.
.
The proposition to the audience is not to primarily engage in that fantasy, 
but first empathy, and ultimately imagination.
.

Just as when we welcome a refugee into our community and lives and are asked to listen, understand, share and not demand what they can give us today, but ask what is this person's potential.
.
And so here is the first glimpse of our hero, Yunus from @sbs.online.documentaries #SheCalledMeRed.
Not a photo or film, as calcifying in our definition and recognition of him as that might be. But an illustration borne of imagination, of loose resemblance to his liminal identity today, and to a past that won't forever define him.
Stateless in an alien land from under a red sun.
Facing from a history of rows of rice fields, or cape flapping in the wind.
Eyes past the mountainous horizon he grew up on, or the torn official documentation that promises stability, identity and status.
.
Follow our world first Instagram documentary on Yunus and his family at @sbs.online.documentaries. We launch Monday.

Our world first Instagram documentary #SheCalledMeRed launches Monday at @sbs.online.documentaries.
.
It's about the Rohingya refugee crisis, an overwhelming subject that we're telling with the personal story of 27 year old Yunus in Melbourne, torn apart from his family in the Bangladesh megacamps.
.
We'll deliver this story of long term mass migration with the immediacy of social media, told in real time with live updates in monsoon season from the refugee camps, film, animation, user generated content and more from a team of award winning journos, photojournalists and artists.
.
I'm excited to be working with the innovative storytellers at @sbs.online.documentaries for the first time since our collaboration on 'The Boat', an interactive comic that won us a World Illustration Award, a United Nations Media Peace Award commendation, and is still going strong at https://www.sbs.com.au/theboat
