Sunday Fundraiser - The Gut Movie

No freebies to this movie, sorry! It's a fundraiser with all ticket profit going to Malak Marketplace!

In The Gut Movie, we follow the journey of journalist & researcher Kale Brock as, in the quest to discover whether the ‘optimal microbiome’ does indeed exist, he travels from Australia to Namibia to live with The San, an ancient hunter-gatherer people living traditionally from the land. During the excursion Brock monitors his own microbiome and how it changes in conjunction with the new surroundings, and takes microbiome samples of The San to gauge the significant differences in microbiota present across cultures.

With expert commentary by leading gastroenterologist Professor Thomas Borody, molecular geneticist Dr Margie Smith, immunology researcher and expert Professor Mimi Tang, naturopath and chiropractor Dr Damian Kristof and more, The Gut Movie provides an insightful yet entertaining look at the explosive research of the gut & its impact on human health.

“The future of medicine may lie somewhere completely unexpected, somewhere only few have dared to look so far, somewhere so farfetched and bizarre that only now in the modern world are we beginning to investigate it… poop. Yes, in our poop.” – Kale Brock, Director

“Kale has done a great job of consolidating a big, and fascinating topic, into a concise and very digestible (pun intended) film – making it easy to understand the significance between gut health and what goes on EVERYWHERE else in the body and as a result empowering viewers to make steps to improve their own health.”

Helen Padarin, Naturopath & Author

“The Gut Movie is a great introduction to the microbiome. Kale’s brilliant cinematography and storytelling makes complex information fun and easy to understand.”

Dr. Margie Smith, Molecular Geneticist

“The Gut Movie makes a significant contribution towards educating the general population about the importance of the gut microbiome to our health. Entertaining as well as full of interesting facts. Well done!”
