Abstract

This short film uses puppets as characters to deliver a strong message about Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) and the risks of drinking during pregnancy. It was written and performed by the people of Barkly, Northern Territory.

The film follows the story of Mathias, a seven year old boy living with FASD in Tennant Creek, Northern Territory. His mother is pregnant and wants to make sure the new baby does not have FASD like Matias. The video follows the challenges families can face when it comes to alcohol and pregnancy.
