The courage of young refugees to tell their story on stage has inspired a new documentary in Australia.

Cast from the Storm follows a group of teenagers from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and elsewhere, now living in Sydney, as they confront their darkest memories, taking part in a drama-therapy programme.

Director David Mason spoke to May Yaacoub at the recent Global Forum of the UN Alliance of Civilizations, in Baku, Azerbaijan, and explained why he felt compelled to make the documentary.
