LiverWELL ยท Viral the Film: An interview with Kamarra Bell-Wykes and Lauren Sheree

Ilbijerri Theatre Company are about to release Viral, a film about hepatitis C in Aboriginal communities.

Viral, written by Maryann Sam, follows the story of Ally and her family as they come to reckoning with hepatitis C and its treatment.

With an all Aboriginal cast and crew, Viral is a landmark film that amplifies the voices of First Nations People.

Dramaturg and consultative director Kamarra Bell-Wykes spoke with LiverWELL about her role in the film and how the workshopping and consultative process to create Viral has given a platform to so many Aboriginal community members about hepatitis C.

Lauren Sheree, a producer at Ilbijerri Theatre Company spoke of how the film is deeply impacting, and delivers a powerful health message due to its realness.
