Join us for a screening of THE MERGER

Join the Minderoo Foundation for an outdoor film under the stars at the Sunset Heritage Precinct in Dalkeith.


A funny, feel-good movie about the Bodgy Creek ‘Roosters,’ a failing footy club who decide to team up with some local refugees and end up winning more than just a game.

Bodgy Creek is a struggling town. The drought won't let up, jobs are scarce after the mill was shut down and the local AFL team looks like it will have to merge with another club or fold.
To help, new arrivals from the nearby refugee support centre are recruited to save the team.
But is it more change than some residents of Bodgy Creek are willing to take?

Come and experience the beautiful Sunset Heritage Precinct and join the Minderoo Foundation as we shine a light on refugee stories with this new Australian comedy/drama.

100% of ticket sales and event proceeds will be donated to local refugee support groups: CARAD (Centre for Asylum Seekers, Refugees and Detainees) and Swim for Refugees, a Student for Refugees initiative at UWA
