|Against Our Oath is a documentary feature film that follows the ethical conflict of doctors when the Australian government overrides their decisions for refugee patients. It’s the inside story on the hotly debated Medevac Bill.
Filmed over four years in seven countries by award winning journalist filmmaker Heather Kirkpatrick (who made Mary Meets Mohammad) the film will confront you with deep moral questions. Here is a link to the trailer and website: https://www.againstouroath.com/
