Part of our Birth Time Documentary
We are embarking on what we consider to be the most important chapter of our Birth Time documentary, examining what is currently happening with maternity services for Indigenous Australian women and exploring the Birthing on Country project.
We are so excited for this next phase of our filming and honoured to be working alongside some incredible Indigenous midwives and capturing their stories, as well as the stories of urban, rural and remote Indigenous women.
Three months ago we applied for a nation wide grant through a company called Huddle, to help us get to the Northern Territory.
Out of a field of high quality applications from all across Australia, WE WERE CHOSEN as 1 of 3 to be offered a $5,000 grant from Huddle!!!
We raised $17,000 during the month of June, and we can't thank our supporters enough for their kind donations. They made this vital nation wide initiative possible. Every cent will be used wisely.
The money raised will get us to the Northern Territory so we can film and shed some much-needed light on the issues and challenges faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women during their pregnancy and birthing time.
This footage will be included in our Birth Time documentary.
AND we are going to produce a FREE 5-minute short film that will share the experience and a ‘behind the scenes - making of’ from this section of the Birth Time production. It will be made available free on our website.
WE NEED YOUR HELP.
Our next step after our trip to the Northern Territory will be to edit and produce our full Birth Time documentary.
We need to pay professionals - editors, graphic artists, sound mixers, etc in order to birth a world class documentary.
Can you help us with the final push?
Thank you in advance xx
