A special movie screening of Bending the Arc

Your dentists at Melbourne Dental Wellbeing, Drs Paul and Brandeis McBratney-Owen, were pleased to host an amazing fundraiser in April 2018 at Cinema Nova, Carlton.

A special screening of Bending The Arc, a recently released award winning documentary.

30 years ago ignited a global health movement

Bending the Arc is a documentary about a team of young people—Paul Faer, Jim Yong Kim, Ophelia Dahl—whose charitable medical work 30 years ago ignited a global health movement. Their goal was simple but daring: to make high quality health care available to everyone, even in the world’s poorest countries. Fighting entrenched diseases, political and bureaucratic machinery, and the existing charity and medical establishments, these crusaders took their fight from the village to the world stage, to ensure that health care is a right for all, and that geography should not determine destiny.

Share our inspiration

Years ago, in Boston, Drs Paul and Brandeis were inspired by the amazing work of Dr Farmer and his colleagues; today they are thrilled to be sponsoring this exclusive Australian screening of Bending the Arc.  They are also pleased to have contributed all ticket proceeds to the Timor Leste Dental Program; you can learn more about this fabulous charitable organisation here https://timordentalprogram.org/about-us
