You See Monsters is a film about the power of art to challenge assumptions, subvert racism and change the way we view the world. Australia’s demonisation of its Muslim population has taken on monstrous proportions: nearly half the nation expresses negative or ambivalent attitudes towards Muslims and Islam is consistently represented as a threat to the much-vaunted ‘Australian way of life’. But a new generation of Australian Muslim artists are now fighting back using art to assert their own agency in the face of anti-Islamic bigotry – not with defensive or apologetic arguments, but on the front foot, using the power of their imaginations to create works of art that are challenging the nation to take a long hard look at it itself.
