A DYING SHAME examines the plight of Aboriginal health in Australia. Through the personal stories of families and individuals within the Aboriginal community in Borroloola in the Northern Territory, this film reveals the human tragedy behind the bald statistics of Aboriginal health.
Aboriginal health has always been an area neglected by Australian governments. Millions of dollars are needed to bring Aboriginal people on par with other Australians. A Dying Shame reveals the human tragedy behind the shocking health statistics in Australia.
A Dying Shame is a documentary that tells personal stories of families and individuals within the remote Aboriginal community in Borroloola (Northern Territory).
The movie was shot over nine months and documents the struggles of Aboriginal people and their families who have to cope with poor health and an ineffectual health system, said to be ‘one of the most inequitable health services in the Western world’.
A Dying Shame is also a story of hope and courage of individuals fighting against the odds.
