When an Australia filmmaker and an Afghan photographer met in an Indonesian refugee camp in 2013 a creative partnership was sparked. Since then Jolyon Hoff and Muzafar Ali have collaborated on various film projects and the setting up of a school and a charity supporting refugee initiatives around the world.
Their latest venture is a documentary about the Afghan cameleers who made Australia home 160 years ago, a story with strong relevance to the current situation in Afghanistan.
