Dancing at the Vatican – live online documentary with Q&A

14 August, 2020     19:00:00 and 20:30:00
People meeting the Pope

Huntington’s NSW ACT is very pleased to announce the second national screening of this amazing documentary telling the story of a group of poor villagers from Latin America who have HD and how they travel to Rome for an audience with Pope Francis at the Vatican.

This amazing documentary tells the story of a group of poor villagers from Venezuela who suffer the highest prevalence of Huntington’s disease in the world. They are supported (and filmed) making their way to the Vatican for an audience with Pope Francis.

The Pope is the first head of state to formally meet a group of people with HD.

Only two Australians were lucky enough to be there to witness this amazing event, and now you can watch it too.

You can read about the making of the documentary here.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will be holding a national live screening online with expert Q&A on Friday 14 August at 7 p.m.

Tickets for this unique event are $20 per household. Please click here to register and obtain your registration code. Do not forward it as it’s a use-once code which means the person you forward it to might get to see the documentary instead of you!
