Event Details

Direct-MS presents a free screening of "Living Proof" in Melbourne, Austalia. "Living Proof" director and MS Patient Advocate Matt Embry will host a Q&A after the screening to discuss his drug-free approach to treating multiple sclerosis.

 

After premiering to sold-out audiences and standing ovations at the Toronto International Film Festival, Living Proof has been selling out theaters across North America. This will be the only public screening in Australia.

 

In Living Proof, a young man is diagnosed with a debilitating autoimmune disease with no cure, prompting a journey to find answers and hope.

 

Filmmaker Matt Embry and his family are devastated when he is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Embry allows cameras into his own life as he and his father, Dr. Ashton Embry, embark on a quest to find insight into the incurable disease. Instead, they discover controversy, confusion and even allegations of conflicts of interest between Big Pharma and MS charities. ​

From England to Iowa, Embry encounters other MS-sufferers who share their own information and question if neurologists, Big Pharma, academia, government and multiple sclerosis charities are keeping MS patients from accessing alternative treatments for the sake of profit and greed.

In the vein of Roger and Me and League of Denial, Living Proof stylistically blends first-person investigative filmmaking, hard science and a compelling, heartfelt story of a father and son’s fight to discover the truth and save lives.


Living Proof will play the Palace Theatre Balwyn at 6:30 pm Wednesday March 28, 2018.


This 100% free event is made possible by Direct-MS.
