Checkpoint

A Lebanese-Australian family is driving through outback Australia when they are stopped by a group of soldiers at a checkpoint. The soldiers claim that war games are underway nearby but it soon becomes clear that they are playing a dangerous game of their own. The father, Nedal, realizes that the safety of his wife and daughter rests in his hands. Checkpoint is an 11-minute film that captures contemporary concerns about the abuse of power and the increase in racism within modern Australia.
