‘The Hurting Strings’ wins International Film Festival Reel Health Award 2014

Jacinta Cashen, Peter Lamont, Reel health Award 2014Congratulations to Peter Lamont and Jacinta Cashen, who last night, won the ‘ReelHealth’ International Film Festival Award hosted by Monash Health for our documentary, The Hurting Strings – An Artist’s Story of Pain.

The film category entries were: Get Well Soon, The Journey, Your Voice, Behind The Scenes, and Mental Health and The Hurting Strings won The Journey category.

‘This category is a personal account through the journey of health. It may be a patient’s experience, or a doctor trying to implement a new technique in a hospital. It may be the career pathway of a nurse from novice to expert or the evolution of health issue in modern society.’

I must sound like a broken record by now, but once again, I am left bewildered by my chronic pain journey and the contrasting experiences that go from excruciating pain to exhilaration. Above all, I feel incredibly privileged at the opportunities presented to me and so happy to be able to help others by communicating my story. I could not have done this without Theo, my family and of course Peter Lamont and Jacinta Cashen.
