New foundation-funded film on organ donation

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?

If you’d like to find more about the film, you can visit the film’s website, go to The Last Race on Facebook, or follow it on Twitter - hashtag #lastrace.
