A new funding campaign has opened for Protection the film from the team at Beyond Empathy who brought you the award-winning Rites of Passage.
The money raised will be used to tour the film and finalise the edit. The kids made it to Canberra yesterday (Thursday 7 Sept) to meet the politicians on a blowy day [read the Canberra Times story].
“We want to take it to all the capital cities and as many regional towns as we can. Two or three of us will attend each screening and talk to the audience.
