Event description

Description

Fresh from its win at the Busan International Film Festival comes bold new Australian film, Pulse, which will rock your world when it comes to changing the way disability is portrayed on screen.


Pulse is the ambitious debut of the talented Daniel Monks, who writes and stars in this body swap drama blending sci-fi with sexual teen angst and identity crisis.

Join us for a screening of the film to raise money for Johanna Garvin’s fundraising challenge, supporting Cerebral Palsy Alliance. Johanna is competing in the World Marathon Challenge/Triple 7 Challenge in January 2018 and attempting to be the first person to complete this event in a wheelchair. The World Marathon Challenge is: 7 marathons; on 7 continents; in 7 days. Johanna will start her challenge in Novo (Antarctica) before travelling to Cape Town (Africa), Perth (Australia), Dubai (Asia), Madrid (Europe), Barranquilla (South America) and finishing on 5 February in Miami (North America). Find out more about her challenge here: http://bit.ly/2glOiCd

All proceeds from the screening will go towards Cerebral Palsy Alliance. Johanna has a $50,000 fundraising goal. Every $20 movie ticket purchase will help buy specialised equipment for kids and adults living with cerebral palsy, such as equipment to assist the General Movements Assessment - allowing children with cerebral palsy to be diagnosed from as early as 12 weeks old. Improvements in early diagnosis can reduce the long term impacts of cerebral palsy.



About the film

Olly is a gay teen with disability who discovers that his two straight best friends are dating each other. Frustrated by his body, he chooses to undertake a pioneering medical procedure: a transplant that puts his mind into the body of a beautiful young able-bodied woman. When his friends see through the beautiful, blonde façade to the troubled boy within, Olly discovers having the perfect body doesn’t fix unrequited love or a broken home. Self-destructive and at risk of losing all that is good in his life, Olly must decide whether his beautiful new identity is worth it.
