Dying To Live
Dying To Live reveals that Australia is well behind the Western World in organ and tissue donor rates, causing immense suffering for those awaiting organs, while other Australians inspire us, with their compassionate gift of life, to want to become physical philanthropists
Gifting Life Productions Pty Ltd.
Deep beneath the complex world of organ and tissue transplantation are the heart-wrenching stories of real people awaiting life-saving organs in Australia. Why must they wait so long? Are changes in policy required – or shifts in perception? What does it take to support a family member running out of time as they await the generosity of strangers? How difficult is it to offer the death of a family member as a chance at life for others? And how much love and understanding does it take to make the compassionate decision to become a physical philanthropist?

Filming in Western Australia
Western Australia provided a key source of crew, cast and locations during production
‘Dying to Live’. A number of our film’s characters, including Peter Wood and Holly Ralph from Perth, and Henry Archoo from Halls Creek, featured in the film. Western Australia also served as a picturesque backdrop for their stories, including Peter’s motorcycle riding and a sequence of Henry’s life and country – the scenery here was beautiful!
