Description

‘Bittersweet – The Rise of Diabetes is a half-hour documentary directed by Hugh Rodgers and produced by both Anna Rodgers and Zlata Filipovic of Invisible Thread Films. The film captures the health system’s fight to treat the rising number of diabetic patients, and warns against this troubling epidemic facing our population. It follows the personal stories of young people who are living with diabetes and their daily struggle to manage it. Over the course of the documentary, we also discover ground breaking research and development in pharmacology and biomedical science, capturing the important work of CÚRAM’s Prof David Brayden and his team at UCD’s Veterinary Hospital, where they are developing new ways of delivering insulin to the body. The film will premiere on November 25th at An Taibhdhearc Theatre in Galway City as part of the Galway Science and Technology Festival 2017.

'Bittersweet- The Rise of Diabetes was produced through the ‘Science on Screen’ initiative between CÚRAM and the Galway Film Centre who manage Galway’s UNESCO City of Film designation.

Other productions from the initiative include ‘Mending Legends’ directed by Paul Webster and produced by James Ryan of Stationhouse Media and 'Feats of Modest Valour' co-directed and co-produced by Mia Mullarkey and Alice McDowell of Ishka Films.
