‘Fade to Black’ in Newcastle
The documentary Fade to Black premiered in Australian cinemas in August.
Fade to Black (1.5 hours) follows the travails of Peter Short, who mounted a personal campaign for legalising voluntary assisted dying (VAD) in the lead up to his death in December 2014. In addition to Peter’s journey, the movie also provides a history and background to the issue of assisted dying, including the passing and subsequent reversal of VAD in the Northern Territory, as well as the legislation that exists in other countries.
The screening is on Monday 11 September 4 pm at Event Cinemas 183-185 King Street, Newcastle, NSW, 2300
