‘Take Heart, Deadly Heart’ – film screening & fundraiser

8 October 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Take Heart, Deadly Heart is a powerful and provocative documentary that tells the interlinked stories of the First Nations children in remote communities grappling with Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) – a largely invisible, but preventable, disease.With our friends Hayley & Brett Kirk, Addi Road is hosting the film screening to raise funds and awareness of the devastating impact RHD has on our First Nations children. Brett & Hayley first became aware of RHD when their 10 year old son Skout was admitted to hospital.

The film is a call to our government to listen and fund the community-led services that will prevent RHD, especially for our First Nations children. Take Heart, Deadly Heart is the sequel to the 2016 documentary Take Heart: The Quest to Rid Australasia of Rheumatic Heart Disease which won nine awards, including gold medal for Best Featurette at the Global Independent Film Awards. Please join us for this special screening and event 5.30-9.30 pm, Saturday 8 October.
