MWIA Documentary Fundraiser Evening
You are warmly invited to the exclusive screening of the documentary ‘No Longer Loved’ by Elouise Hahn (Loreto Kirribilli). This moving and eye-opening documentary takes a closer look at the ageing situation in India resulting in a phenomena called ‘Granny-dumping’. Increasing numbers of children are abandoning their parents on the streets, outside railway stations or in under-resourced hospitals to fend for themselves in old age.
‘No Longer Loved’ follows the transformation of three courageous women who once dumped by their children, are now living in a loving home run by a small local charity originally started by Loreto Sister Cyril Mooney in Kolkata.
This is the first screening of the documentary and will be followed by a panel discussion about the role of social justice within the media.
Special guests include:
Fr Richard Leonard SJ, Director of the Australian Catholic Film and Broadcasting
Helen McCabe, Editor of Australian Women’s Weekly magazine
Sandy Aloisi, ABC Presenter and Journalist
Kathryn Greiner AO, MWIA Chair
