FREE DOCUMENTARY SCREENING: Hard To Believe
Sat. 3 December 2016, 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm AEDT
It’s happened before: Governments killing their own citizens for their political or spiritual beliefs. But it’s never happened like this.
“Hard to Believe” is a serious investigation into one of the most horrifying medical crimes of our time: forced live organ harvesting from tens of thousands of Chinese prisoners of conscience and the response – or lack of it – around the world.
"This documentary is extremely important for those involved in organ donation and transplantation, human rights, healthcare, ethics and the law... The credentials of the interviewed experts is impeccable."
~ Journal of Bioethical Inquiry
“An important, timely and deeply disturbing account of one of the great human rights abuses of our time.”
~ Dr. Arthur Caplan, PhD, Founding Director of the Division of Medical Ethics, NYU
"This film shows us the dark face of human rights abuses, of what can come to pass when individuals are reduced, literally, to the sum of their parts. The participation of medical practitioners in the harvesting of organs breaches all ethical codes, and is impossible to reconcile with the role of physicians to heal rather than harm."
~ Wendy Rogers, Professor of Clinical Ethics, and Deputy Director of the Macquarie University Research Centre for Agency, Values and Ethics
