Event description
In Australia, two men work to provide the last hope of relief and in some cases cure for thousands suffering chronic and terminal illnesses.

About this Event

They provide black market medicinal cannabis for people who have nowhere else to turn.

The plant is now widely considered to have pain-relieving (and in some cases curative) potential, yet swift and compassionate access is still not an option for many people in need. Their job is to help sick and dying Australians, and by caring for these people, they are forced to risk everything.

Join us for this fascinating and illuminating evening of film, live music and chocolate tasting!

CHOCOLATE TASTING with CHOW CACAO

Chow Cacao’s delicious organic, raw, vegan chocolate bars are made from fair trade and sustainably sourced ingredients. Handmade in our home town Byron Bay and hand-wrapped in nostalgic golden foil. The mix of classic and funky flavours will bring you back to your childhood, when coconut roughs and golden foil were a thing! Their simple and iconic packaging is inspired by the 70’s surf culture here in Byron Bay.

LIVE MUSIC with SAM BUCKINGHAM

A genuine folk troubadour, Sam Buckingham is praised as "gorgeous and moving... with an authenticity that is undeniable" (The Au Review).

After co-producing her Australian Music Prize long-listed album “I’m A Bird” (2013) with multiple ARIA winner Paul McKercher, Buckingham traveled to Latin America to pen songs for her latest independent release “The Water”.

Released June 2017, and with storytelling and poetry at it’s core, Buckingham has been gracing stages with it’s offerings both at home and in the USA, selling out intimate venues country-wide and touring alongside the likes of Kasey Chambers, Katie Noonan and James Reyne.

In May 2018, Buckingham released collaborative EP “Stories From The Road” with fellow songsmith Timothy James Bowen. The EP debuted at #3 on the iTunes country charts and saw the duo embark on a four week national tour, garnering acclaim for their exceptional songwriting and heart breaking harmonies.

“Winsome songs delivered with empathic delicacy” - Rolling Stone
