Australian School resource: Sohail – a story of a refugee

Developed from the VR and 2D short documentary, Night Becomes Day (2020). This school resource celebrates the lives of refugees through the voice of teenager Sohail Haqyar.

ATOM’s study guide is for primary and secondary students from years 5–10. It provides information and learning activities in the following areas:

  • Civics and Citizenship
  • English
  • Geography
  • Global Politics
  • Media Arts

This program is under the Australian Curriculum general capabilities of Ethical Understanding and Intercultural Understanding.


In 2020, teenager Sohail is just one of 79 million displaced people in the world.  Inspired by Theo, a local human rights worker in Athens refugee camp, Sohail seeks safety and rebuilds his life. We intimately share his personal journey from night to day.

Available for universities and schools.
