A Holy Duty & The Healing

Thursday, 15 July 2021 - 11:00am to 11:30am
The Healing

We look at Sarah Marcuson's short film A Holy Duty which explores the work of the volunteer organisation “Chevra Kadisha”, or “Sacred Society” which cares for the dead in the Jewish religion.


We follow with a chat with Nick Barkla about his film The Healing which is the opening film at the upcoming Melbourne Documentary Film Festival. When you bring damaged, left over race horses and struggling ex-service people together magic happens. A fascinating film.

Thursday 11:00am to 11:30am
Your half hour of local film news, conversations with film makers and explorations into how they bring their ideas to life on screen. Showreel promises an exciting package of film information that will set your ears buzzing.
