AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE – DOCUMENTARY, “GOING THE DISTANCE: JOURNEYS OF RECOVERY”

Monday 28th October – 5.30pm

The 7th National Brain Injury Conference is honoured to host the Australian premiere of the award-winning documentary “Going the Distance: Journeys of Recovery” – the stories of four survivors of severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). It features US Marines Corporal Jason Poole, pictured, who sustained catastrophic head injuries from a roadside bomb while serving in Iraq. The documentary was awarded “Most Inspirational Film” at the 2017 Oregon Documentary Film Festival.

Brain Injury Australia is also delighted that the documentary’s three-time Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, David L. Brown, pictured – who’s written and directed over 80 productions and 16 broadcast documentaries on social, nuclear, health, technology, peace and environmental issues – will be attending the Conference to introduce the film. He will also screen an update on the lives of documentary’s four stars. It “will include the high points of their lives,” Brown says, “during the nine years since they were filmed – getting married and having kids, for example. It’s been a thrill to follow their recoveries.” Find out more about “Going the Distance: Journeys of Recovery” and David L. Brown, here www.goingthedistance.info
