discrimination

There are occasional scenes of racist and discriminatory behaviour. There is infrequent casual use of racist terms including ‘paki’, and in a comic scene a man reads from a list of racist ‘banned words’ which includes ‘camel jockey’, ‘towel heid’, ‘goat f**ker’, ‘Osama’ and ‘shit Aladdin’. The work carries a clear anti-racist message.

language

There is infrequent use of strong language (‘f**k’). Milder terms include ‘wank’, ‘shit’, ‘balls’ and ‘flange’.

sex

There are infrequent moderate sex references including to masturbation.

sexual violence and sexual threat

In one scene people make racist comments associating Middle Eastern refugees with acts of rape. In another scene a man gropes a woman’s behind during a class demonstration of inappropriate social interaction; the woman slaps him in response.


A man discovers a dead body; there is no sign of injury, and it is implied that the person died of exposure.
