This article presents and interrogates a series of short films made collaboratively by the researcher and Sudanese young women from refugee backgrounds in Australia. They examine the prevailing social conditions for connectedness/ disconnectedness in the context of a sometimes-hostile contemporary immigration climate. The films utilise arts-based methodologies to disrupt the folds and pleats of conventional stories told of and about the pedagogies of belonging and becoming. The films draw upon the informants’ social practices of self to trouble teleological narratives of identity and they offer a territory of possibilities for travelling along disorienting lines of flight (Deleuze & Guattari, 1987).
