HELP Auckland presents the premiere of "Don't Tell", the internationally acclaimed film about a young woman who fought back after enduring sexual abuse at a prestigious private school.

We are delighted to let you know that director Tori Garett will be holding Q&A after the screening to talk to the director, and then joining us for drinks in the gorgeous AUT Atrium.

This is a fundraiser for HELP, a charity that helps women and children survivors of sexual abuse to recover and heal.

About Don't Tell:

This impressive debut feature honours the courage and tenacity of Lyndal, the young Queensland woman who in 2001 blew the whistle on the Anglican church’s decade-old cover-up of sexual assaults at the prestigious Toowoomba Preparatory School. Traumatised by her abuse, Lyndal was further shaken by the school’s dogged loyalty to the perpetrator, who had confessed to other abuses. She sought relief in public acknowledgement of her suffering, but during the civil case in which she testified she was subjected to relentless condescension and character assassination. This, however, led to a revolution in child protection in Australia and also brought down a governor-general, Peter Hollingworth, who had been the Anglican archbishop of Brisbane at the time of the abuse.

The film is a passion piece for its director and for Lyndal’s attorney Stephen Roche (played in the film by Aden Young), who wrote a book about the case. The backing of a stellar cast – including Rachel Griffiths, Jack Thompson, Jacqueline McKenzie and Susie Porter – was instrumental in getting the film made. In a raw emotional performance as Lyndal, Sara West stands tall in their company.

"An engrossing film of rare and compelling authenticity" - Ian Callilan, Retired High Court Judge & Author.

"The best courtroom drama I've seen since, well, Erin Brockovich" - Erin Brockovich.

"A movie which will grip anyone who loves children...Superb!" - Patsy Wolfe AO, Retired Chief Judge of the District Court of Queensland.
