'Unsung Heroes' at Cockatoo Island Film Festival

A cultural experience with guaranteed good karma.

The nice guys at Cockatoo Island Film Festival are not only bringing a bunch of cultural festivities to everyone's favourite art-hang island, but also a social conscience. As part of the five day festival, the moving documentary Unsung Heroes will be screening with 100% of the funds raised on the night going to charity. The funds will help the children of South Africa, and women like Cynthia Tobias who features in the film and relies on a singular pension to care for 28 children. The screening will take place on Thursday 25 October in the Blacksmith cinema, make sure you get your ticket for an eye-opening night of education (and good karma).
