The Anita Luca Belgiorno-Nettis Foundation has funded a new film looking at organ donation, to be screened this Sunday 26 February on ABC1 at 6.30pm (repeated Monday at 1:30pm).
The Last Race is a compelling 30-minute drama about a family suddenly faced with a decision of whether to donate the organs of 25-year-old Mike, and a race against time to save a life. A moving and powerful film, it shows a family struggling to make a difficult decision on behalf of a loved one. The complexities of not knowing the deceased’s intentions, and the speed with which the decision has to be made, are brought to the fore. The Last Race tells a story that could become reality for any of us, a decision that anyone may have to make, and paradoxically offers the chance to change a person’s life for the better. As we see the family reach their decision, the film asks: what would you do?
