Special Film Preview - Ambrosia
A compelling new film which reveals that
PAIN HAS A MEMORY
You are invited to attend a special preview of a new feature ﬁlm ‘Ambrosia' by director Rhiannon Bannenberg presented during National Pain Week at Fox Studios [in New South Wales] on Thursday 23rd of July.
The ﬁlm which deals with the psychological impact of chronic pain on a young woman’s life has been selected by hosts Painaustralia and Chronic Pain Australia to be a key event in the annual week-long festival.
National Pain Week 20 – 26 July aims to remove the stigma and silence around the invisible burden carried by those who suffer chronic pain and their carers. This screening of Ambrosia which adds to an Australia-wide line-up of activities will appeal to a very broad audience.
We love the way this film intimately describes the issues that people living with pain deal with every day. Feelings of isolation and guilt are often not associated with those suffering from ongoing pain but they are both very real and present issues.
Based on real life experience, Ambrosia deals with these themes as experienced by ‘India’ a young woman played by Rebecca Montalti. Outwardly, India seems normal but internally she is struggling with a multitude of issues as a consequence of her constant pain. We think people will gain immense insight through India’s journey in the ﬁlm as well as the Q&A after with the ﬁlmmakers.
Ambrosia was written, directed and shot by Rhiannon Bannenberg who has an intimate understanding of chronic pain having lived with the condition since her early teen years and who will be attending this special preview - not to be missed.
Tickets can only be purchased online before the event. Tickets will not be available on the night.
