Meet three-time Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, David L. Brown.
Brain Injury Australia's 7th National Brain Injury Conference will 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.
The documentary profiles US Marines Corporal Jason Poole, who sustained catastrophic head injuries from a roadside bomb while serving in Iraq; Co-ed Kristen Collins who was severely injured in a motorcycle accident while away at college; Pre-med student Jay Waller, who fell victim to a savage road-rage beating while on vacation; and six-year-old Ian McFarland, who survived the car crash that left him an orphan.
Discover their personal stories of devastation, heroism and hope.
The documentary was awarded "Most Inspirational Film" at the 2017 Oregon Documentary Film Festival and was an Award Winner at 2018's Hollywood International Independent Documentary Awards.
The documentary's three-time Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, David L. Brown, will be attending the Conference to introduce the film. He will also screen the World Premiere of an update on the lives of the documentary's four stars.
All are welcome to attend the Australian Premiere of Going the Distance: Journeys of Recovery. The event will take place on Monday 28th October, 5.30pm – 7.30pm at Glyn Davis Building (MSD), University of Melbourne. Register here.
