Temple of Dreams screening at Macquarie
With a proposed new Islamic school facing strong community opposition in the Sydney suburb of Camden, it is timely that the Centre for Research on Social Inclusion at Macquarie is screening a new documentary called Temple of dreams. The film portrays similar challenges faced by a group of young Australian Muslims attempting to set up a youth centre in Sydney. Details about the film and the screening are below:
Introduced by the director, Tom Zubrycki

Temple of Dreams follows a group of Lebanese Australians who set up an Islamic youth centre in Western Sydney. The documentary – by one of Australia’s leading documentary film makers – follows the group’s battle against the local council to keep the centre open, and their struggle to fit into the wider community.
