"Geeta" is the true story of one Indian woman's fight to rebuild her own and her daughters' lives after they survive a cruel acid attack from her own husband. www.geetafilm.com Married at a young age, Geeta found herself in an abusive marriage, harassed by her husband and in-laws for giving birth to girls. Geeta and her three daughters’ lives were changed forever when her husband, egged on by his family, plotted and carried out an acid attack that critically injured Geeta, blinded her young daughter, and killed her newborn baby girl. Geeta’s story is courageous, surprising, and a searing reminder of the power of love to create real change. This inspiring feature documentary needs a little extra funding to get through post-production. The filmmakers will be hosting a silent auction on the 6th of October, 6.30-9.30pm in Albert Park, Melbourne. RSVP today at Geeta Film Fundraiser and help the story of Geeta make it to the big screen. #neveralone Read More →
Australian of the Year 2015 Family violence campaigner
When a grieving mother spoke out calmly just hours after her son’s murder, she gave voice to many thousands of victims of domestic violence who had until then remained unheard. Rosie Batty has risen above her personal tragedy and the great loss of her 11 year old son, Luke, who was the victim of domestic violence at the hands of his father in a very public assault. Rosie’s story jolted Australia into recognising that family violence can happen to anyone. Victorian Police Chief Commissioner, Ken Lay, praising Rosie as the most “remarkable victim” he has ever met, says Rosie has put domestic violence on the national agenda. Rosie now champions efforts to fight domestic violence, making many media and public speaking appearances to shine a spotlight on the issue and call for systemic changes. Rosie’s incredible strength and selfless efforts are an inspiration to many other victims of domestic violence and her courage and willingness to speak out will make Australia a far better place.
