An Unfinished Life: The True Impact of Antibiotic Resistance
Attend the Australian premiere screening of the impactful, internationally acclaimed documentary "Salt in My Soul" and hear from international and local experts in the field of antibiotic resistance.
About Salt in My SoulThe documentary, "Salt in My Soul", follows the life of Mallory Smith. Diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of 3, and a resistant superbug infection at the age of 15, Mallory reflects on life with a terminal, chronic, and sometimes invisible illness with incredible wisdom and insight. A keen environmentalist, she saw a startling and vivid metaphor for her declining health in the destruction of our world. In Mallory’s final days, her father uncovered a long-forgotten treatment that is now changing the world of medicine. Heartbreakingly, it came too late to save his daughter.
