PHOTO 2021 Festival released the trailer for Agonistes

Using the medium of photography and film, Agonistes explores the experiences of nine whistleblowers who have spoken out about harm, misconduct and injustices perpetrated in a range of Australian institutions. Whether whistleblowing on matters to do with the military, Secret Intelligence Service, immigration detention, youth detention, or aged and disability care, Afshar’s subjects have spoken out for those whose voices were never meant to be heard.
