Sexual abuse survivors Sharmaine and Alex Meek from Geelong are featured in the documentary and will be doing a Q and A as part of the Healing the Broken Heart tour.

Humble Hope is an international award winning documentary film about child sexual abuse, screening in Canowindra at 6pm on Monday.

Humble Hope is a 69-minute film of hope and healing which has been recognised with six international film festivals.

The screening in Canowindra on Monday is part of the ‘Healing the Broken Heart’ tour, which ends in Newcastle on May 19. 

Executive director Warwick Marsh, cameraman Sam James and abuse survivors will join the tour and will run a Q and A following the screening.

“Humble Hope tells the triumphant stories of those who have suffered in silence too long,” Marsh said.

“In Australia one in four women and one in six men are victims of child sexual abuse. That means five million Australians need access to the resources that Humble Hope aims to provide.” 

The ‘Healing the Broken Heart’ tour aims to raise funds to stop child sexual abuse and bring hope and healing to sexual abuse survivors by offering free fundraising pre-screening dinners at each location.

The Canowindra screening will be held at Canowindra Uniting Church from 6pm to 9.30pm.
