The Broken Hearted

In 2019, as Western Australia prepared to debate a Voluntary Assisted Dying law, filmmakers Juliet Lamont and Josh Raymond travelled across the state to document the stories of suffering at the end of life.

People courageously stepped forward to be heard. Their message: ‘What happened to us was cruel and unnecessary, and should never be allowed to happen again’.

Fatal Fraud

Fatal Fraud is a case study about techniques used by opponents against evidence-based public policy initiatives. In this film, Andrew Denton explains with the help of leading experts how emotional manipulation, fear, framing and omission are deployed to sow fear, uncertainty and doubt in the minds of legislators and the public.
